    This hyrid was registered in 1980 as Phal. Bee Ridge. In fact, who knows whether the original was made with violacea or bellina, since they were synonymous at that time. I'm going to stir the pot. There are a lot of adjectives that reasonably apply to this flower, but beautiful does not come to mind. Curious, interesting(maybe), dark, maybe muddy, charming(?), etc. IMO, the charm of both species has been lost , with no offsetting gain in any other area(form, color).
    Edit: Bee Ridge is (fuscata x violacea); (fuscata x bellina) = Fuscabell. Looking back 30 years, it's tough to know if bellina or violacea was actually used to make Bee Ridge.

    Some plants may not be spectacularly beautiful, but they make very good parents for hybridizing.. One example, phal Deventeriana (amboinensis x amabilis), doesn't really have the WOW-factor in itself but used widely to breed the yellow phals we have now.

    Michael thanks for the info of this hybrids, when come to hybrid everybody hoping their creation if possible should be the best, the outcome always depend on the both parent based on my experience previously I got bigger flower of phal venosa crossing with small one and the small venosa carried the seedpod, I would expected the flower should be followed the bigger flower apparently in reality after the bud opened so sad it's follow the small shape. flower.
