    They smell like carnations also. My other type of Miltoniopsis does also. I'm not sure if all of them do.
    I don't have a label for this one either, so I'm not sure what it is called. Actually, I have the label it was shipped with, but it certainly isn't what the label says. For some reason, I keep the label in the pot anyway. LOL
    At one time I had a bench which I devoted to Miltoniopsis, and I reckoned there were about 80 or 90 different names on the labels, but less than 10 different sorts ( colours, patterns) of flowers. Partly due to the fact that anyone can make a new cross and give it a distinctive name, without it having o be a new look of flowers. And partly I think because some nursery trade people invent names to write on labels for one reason or another.
    The only time it actually matters is if you want to breed from a plant |( a pretty remote chance for most of us, with most of our plants ! ) or if you want to enter it for an award ( and maybe I can say the same for that - a rather remote chance ).

    Those are so pretty - such a deep, rich, royal color. Great work, Taylor!

    Lovely blooms. Wish I could grow them but they don't like my conditions.
