    Default Cymbidiums. My hybrids

    These are a few pics from my Uncle who is flowering a few of the last lot of Cym hybrids I made a number of years ago now. They are not the best that have flowered from the crosses shape wise but gives a general view of the colors I got.
    The pure color greens are, Pure Gold x Eastern Star
    The Red ones are, Valley Regent x ( Pure Dawn x Yowie Flame )
    The Orange Brown one is, Lunata x Dream Valley.

    Hi Roy,
    Wooow, very beautiful flowers!
    I like the one on the second picture (yellow) and the orange/brown one!
    Cymbidiums don't like me, so it's great seeing pictures from someone elses success.

    Looks like you've got that hybridising talent going on Roy! The pure colours are really nice! Interesting about the reds... I have a compot of Valley Regent x Yowie Pepper (which is Pearly Pepper x Yowie Flame), so I'd be intersted in how they turn out... ie similarity in colouration and shape etc etc..
