    The best that I can describe the smell is like roses only sweeter. Maybe roses and vanilla?

    I forgot to mention the cross is it P. Coral Music x P. Violet King. I can't find any info on Coral Music (If anyone knows I would appreciate info), but Violet king had over 90% P. Violacea in it's breeding. P. Lueddemaniana is in there too.

    Martha, Phal. Coral Music was only registered in January of this year; that's why you couldn't find any info on it. The pollen parent is Phal Coral Isles, pod parent is Phal Country Music. Country Music is violacea by Malani, and Coral Isles is Princess Kaiulani x lueddemanniana.

    That's where the luedd comes from: you were right on both counts--good eye!
