    Default Cym Brenda 'Hi-Lights'

    I think it was Ron who posted a picture of a Cymbidium with a delicious pink labellum.. since then I have been searching far and wide for something similar.

    so trawling through vendor's lists and fotos, and i came across Brenda. I ordered a plant and got one with the start of a spike.. that was in June. A couple of months later and here she is and am I ever so glad! I truly love Brenda's pink lips!

    and here is a close-up of the flower showing the voluptuous lip.

    Thanks for the lovely comments everyone... I'm glad Brenda is well liked.. she's right here with me in the study and is also providing a sweet little fragrance... sweet and not overpowering.
