    Default A peloric Phal Baldan's Kaleidoscope

    I think this hybrid has been over cloned. Many of these peloric Phals seem to be coming from cloning clones. Some peloric Phals are ghastly but I kind of like this one.

    not as unusual as they used to be. I come across at least one peloric Phal every time I walk through one of out local box store's garden department.

    Now that has to be different! I think your 'over cloning' theory is right on target. I like it though, would be nice to be able to put a 'normal' one beside this one for a photo comparison.

    I agree. And I like it too. Sometimes pelorics distort the flower so much that they are not attractive anymore. This one has just the right amount of distortion to make it pretty and interesting.

    I agree, I think that the frilly effect to the petals is quite lovely.
