    I can see why it followed you home. It is great. Does it have a fragrance?

    Cheers,

    It is a division from a very reliable growers plant. I copied what the tag said . After doing some digging around I think it is Phaius minor flavus don't know about the lemon glow part. Thanks for looking

    The plant is Phaius flavus, without a doubt. The name Phaius minor is listed on the International Plant Name Index, but this source does not state whether the name is a valid name. I looked, in my very extensive database, and I have no mention of the name Phaius minor. Phaius flavus is an extremely widespread species that is found throughout much of southeast Asia, and through its range it is somewhat variable. 'Lemon Glow' is a clonal name designated to the illustrated plant and is of no botanical merit. The only worth for the clonal name is in a horticultural sense.
