    Default Miltassia Dark Star 'The Orchid Works'

    Wow, nice colors. I recently saw one for sale and almost bought it, but I already have a lot of purples in my collection.

    Love the spots, especially the tear drops on the lip (it's called lip, right?).

    Very beautiful flowers despite of the arrangement. Overall nice shape, colour and patterning. It's a classic Miltassia, nice choice Angie.
