    Default Latest phal addition; violacea back cross

    Here's one beauty I just couldn't leave at the grocery store for the second week in a row. I was able to control the urge last week but it was still there this week so it had to come home with me. She's called Sogo Festival x violacea and has two blooms on a 4" spike with a 6" leaf span. No fragrance that I was able to detect but I do have a stuffy nose.

    Randy took the words right out of my mouth. Stunning is the only suitable word for this beauty.

    Thank you for sharing her with us.

    That's absolutely amazing, the kind of gem an orchid lover can't resist...Lucky you!
    Is the flowering recurring on the same spike as is the case with Phal. violacea?
