    Default Ionara Abigail Dancing

    Ilonara Abigail Dancing

    I was exited to see the first two blossoms on this hybrid open today. It came last year with the one blossom destroyed in shipping so I did not know what it would look like and there are no images of this hybrid that I can find. The blossom is about an inch tall - quite a bit larger than a Tolumnia blossom and kind of fleshy. The leaves look like large, fat Tolumnia leaves

    It was labeled as Otz Chantilly Mist X Rdcm Spring Bouquet but in searching it out the registered name it is Ilonara Chantilly Mist X Rodrumnia Spring Bouquet. I don't know if Rdcm was an error or if Spring Bouquet was reassigned to Rodrumnia.

    Tiny bit out of focus. I'll get more photos when all of the buds open.

    I made a mistake in the spelling. It is Ilonara not Ionara.

    Very pretty! For me, I get to see a sunny blossom on a cold, snowy (very white) day!

    That's a stunning flower, and being larger and heavier texture than Tolumnia must really make it pop in person.

    The names were all correct in their time.

    Rodricidium (Rdcm.) (Oncidium x Rodriguezia) was from a time before Tolumnia, when those plants were known as equitant Oncidium, and is now known as Rodrumnia (Rrm.) (Rodriguezia x Tolumnia).

    Ontolezia (Otz.) (Oncidium x Rodrigezia x Tolumnia) was from a time before Gomeza came in for some former Oncidium, and is now known as Ilonara (Ilo.) (Gomeza x Rodriguezia x Tolumnia).

    This cross is about 90%+ Tolumnia, but over at least 10 generations of breeding the 7%+ contribution from Gomeza and Rodriguezia apparently helped select for larger and better textured flowers. There's 3% unknown something in there too but it is probably more Gomeza.
