    Default Beallara Peggy Ruth Carpenter blooms

    In september I bought this orchid labelled as cambria. It wasn't in bloom either, so I have no idea how to get info about it.

    And, only a week ago, when the first flower began to open



    I found a thread with pictures of Beallara Peggy Ruth Carpenter by chance, and my cambria could be Beallara Peggy Ruth Carpenter as well. On the following day, I could take this picture. What do you think? It's a Beallara Peggy Ruth Carpenter or Beallara Peggy Ruth Carpenter 'Morning Joy'

    In Europe at least a lot of intergeneric hybrids sold in big box stores are sold labelled as "cambria", which is patently incorrect, so you sort of have to guess what they really are.

    That certainly looks like a Beallara Peggy Ruth Carpenter though, but I have no idea about the "Morning Joy" or not.

    I have three "cambrias" and they look completely different.
    I agree, it's too common labelling intergeneric hybrids as cambria.

    I would agree that it is Ballara Peggy Ruth Carpenter. Lovely bloom.

    Cheers,
