    Default Actually Galeopetalum Giant 'Rhein Moonlight' AM/AOS

    This is an update, with photos, from an earlier post describing this plant as zygo - it has since been discovered to be a Galeopetalum Giant 'Rhein Moonlight' (Zygopetalum Artur Elle x Galeottia grandiflora). It was registered with the RHS in 2005 and has won an AM/AOS. These photos are also updates. Hope people enjoyed the journey on this one....

    Very pretty bloom and it's seem that Galeottia is more dominant in this plant.
