    Default Odont. Moliere 'Dyonis'

    4 flowers on this blooming but large.Flowers measure 4 1/2 & a little more from tip to tip of side laterals.When it has been open awhile the lavender blush starts to concentrate on the outer edges--almost like picotee.This is an old cross but really worthwhile.

    That's a gorgeous one, Jane. I've never seen them with flowers that size--must look pretty spectacular up close and in person.

    Nice one, Jane! I love odonts. I've never seen a color morph in one before - quite cool! A beautiful flower, too!

    GORGEOUS. Although I fear them because of temperature/humidity problems in my growing area, Odontoglossums and their hybrids are probably my favourite among the Oncidium alliance. Flowers like the one on this plant are the reason! This brings me to a question, though. Shouldn't this photo have been placed under the heading of Phalaenopsis, Oncidium & Intergenerics IN BLOOM, rather than Orchids of Other Genera IN BLOOM?
    Cheers,

    Rob
