    I don't see many of these in pure white...well except for the little bit of yellow. I really like this in white...very cool!

    It has an expensive name, 'Crystelle'. I love the white color.

    I also like the white flowers. Have you made any crosses with it and if so what do they look like?

    Beautiful, unusual delenatii. Does it have the usual fragrance?

    Pretty! However, the 'Crystelle' cultivar doesn't show up in OrchidPlus... is there a misspelling?
