    Default Oda (Onc) Moulin de Louise

    This is EYF (Eric Young Foundation) breeding. For those who don't know, Eric Young was a very rich man who was interested in having the best ( most awarded) orchids. He had a huge collection, employed 3 (?, maybe more ) full time growers. Left his fortune in trust ( no family, no spouse, no kids ) to look after his collection with a brief to go on breeding award-winning orchids. They are now in a big place in Jersey in the (UK) Channel Islands, with I think 5, 120 foot long 25 foot wide greenhouses, labs, growing rooms, etc etc...The public can view a small group - well about twice the size of the house I live in, never mind my greenhouse-but take your bona fide orchid society membership card, and you get to see more. They don't sell - its no use asking to buy something. But what they do is flower out each new cross, keep the ones they want for show or breeding, sometimes sell the remaining plants by inviting a single trade nursery, and telling them - hey you can have these three square yards of bench of plants for £x... This plant came from one such buy.
    My first flowering of this plant with about 11 flowers, about 11cm across ( too small to be kept for anything by them) and badly tied up by me, so not showing its best.
    But I like it, and I have no doubt that when I put it on a show bench, it will be coveted by all odont lovers.

    Just stunning. Really envy you for being able to grow these cool Oda. For me I can only enjoy seeing them when I go up to the cool highlands. Thanks for posting, Geoff!
