    Default Phal. Malibu Imp 'Anna Mae'

    Hi everyone -

    This is Phal. Malibu Imp 'Anna Mae'. It is a cross between Phal. amboiensis and Phal. luedde-violacea (lueddemania x violacea).

    I've seen some photos of different clones that are far redder than this one and I've read that Malibu Imp is often used for adding red to phals.

    It was incredibly difficult to get a good shot of this bloom - it has a highly polished wax finish, so reflections of light bounce off the petals, and it is that elusive deep magenta/violet that is SO hard to get right on a digital camera. This shot is the closest to the real thing as possible. The intensity of the color still doesn't quite come through, but it's fairly close.

    With such dramatically deep color it's surprising to be able to make out the pattern on it! Great phal...I've never seen one like it.

    I always thought that the phals where just kind of blah, but with that said I have close to 20 or so phals but this one is absolutely magnificent I just love that red color, this going on my must have list.

    Maura; What can I say, but that the photograph looks near perfect and this cross is exceptionally fine. Well Done! AL

    Absolutely beautiful! Malibu Imp has received many awards and it was an important step in the breeding of modern red phalaenopsis. It's a little piece of orchid history.
