    One of the Aussie hybrids, with the charming habit of repeat flowering for several years, on its canes - if you do it right ! I bought it with 4 flowering canes a year ago, grew 2 more, and flowered all six - good enough to get me both best hybrid, and also best dendrobe, in Bournemouth Spring Show ( Spring - now there is a lovely idea - we have more snow forecast for next week, although I doubt if we shall have anything worse than a flurry , this far south and west in England.)

    After an interesting discussion, it seems that it is about 50-50 whether this really is Star ofRiverdene (not Rivendeene) or Hilda Poxon. Anyone looking might try looking for the latter.
    It seems that a Belgian(?) nursery recently sold a whole batch of these, so any Western European nursery might have them - my local garden centre had half a dozen last week.All gone now.
