    Default Lyc Leo 'Riopelle' AM/AOS x Lyc. skinner

    I bought this orchid in January at orchid society. It's last bloom was fading and I thought I would have to wait another year to enjoy it's blooms. This spring it started sending up new growths. It turns out that 2 of the 7 growths were flower buds. It does not have the scent my aromatica has but it does have a slight fragrance in the morning. It has been in bloom for one week. It is another orchid I like for the form and delicate coloration of the blooms.

    It is all that you say it is Bill. I also appreciate something beautiful, subtle, and easy on the eyes. AL
