    Default Phrag Albopurpureum 'Sir Arthur' AM/AOS

    I have been waiting for this phrag to bloom again for two years. Those of you who have been around for awhile will remember this guy. We grew him for around 10 years and finally he bloomed about two years ago. I featured him in our forum's publication ORCHIDS THROUGH OUR EYES on the title page. Well, the wait is over. This bloom is not as beautiful as the first bloom (probably did not get enough water when it was setting), but it is huge! I was so surprised to see how large the bloom was this time compared to last. Anyway, here are the photos! Please forgive me for posting so many in one post, but I had to show off this guy. Enjoy!
