    All lovely! The 'Crazy Mouse' is interesting with all the markings on the bottom and the pure white top, but I think I like the "Queen's Jewel" best--so elegant looking.

    I'm glad y'all enjoyed these photos... the plants were in a friend's display who owns an orchid nursery in Western Australia. Zainal, Cym Phreaque was registered in 1994 by Batchman (as per RHS website), and the 'Crazy Mouse' clonal epithet would have been by my friend Kevin. He would have registered the Cym Darch Freak grex name too.
