    The name is quite as dramatic as the flowers.

    Beautiful. Very strong influence of Cymbidium devonianum?.

    Default Cymbidium Death Wish 'Saratoga'

    Thanks, very little or no devonianum, I think. You can make many cymbidiums pendulous if you don't stake up their flower spikes! This is actually a fairly large plant with large flowers; devonianum is smaller and, I think, more floriferous. I have some devonianum crosses. I think their flowers also tend to have more brownish colors.

    Disney Girl = tracyanum x Robin

    Pywacket = tracyanum x Tethys

    So Death Wish is a whole lot of tracyanum.

    Azizan, I have another Death Wish cross (x Ken Siew) made with Death Wish 'Vampire Slayer'...talk about dramatic!!
