    Absent parentheses, the name of this plant could be parsed as (Dor. pulcherrima var. alba X Dor. pulcherrima var. champornensis alba 'Lemon Dolly') or (Dor. pulcherrima var. alba X Dor. pulcherrima var. champornensis alba) 'Lemon Dolly'. Either would be equally valid, given no further information. Perhaps I made the wrong assumption. Perhaps you have.

    Connie, are there any parentheses on your tag?

    Agreed that the RHS is not necessarily a final taxonomic authority, it is the de facto final authority for horticultural purposes. I thought the RHS accepted (as does the AOS) the Kew "Checklist of Selected Plant Families" as the authority for taxonomy.
    Further research:
    -Kew Checklist DOES accept Plalaenopsis pulcherrima as the correct name for this plant. RHS lists Phal. pulcherrima as a synonym, and recognizes Dor. pulcherrima as the correct name. So maybe RHS has decided to be a taxonomic authority?

    No, the tag does not have parentheses. I love all this taxonomic stuff....

    Well, I can run on a little more, but I'm not sure it will help. The clonal name 'Lemon Dolly' was used twice for awarded yellow phals. If one could contact Mark Rose, the former owner and hybridizer, one might be able to find out which plant is 'Lemon Dolly'-probably not worth the effort. The safest name to use now is Dor. pulcherrima.
