    Default Doritis Pulcherrima...

    These two just came into bloom for us.
    The first one is called, Dor. Plucherrima 'Champorensis' v. alba

    We have only been growing this for a little over a year. I think it looks like a lion roaring.

    Next is Dor. Pulcherrima x self

    We grew this compot for the last 10 -11 years. I thought it was never going to bloom, and then voila, here it is. Only one bud has opened, so after it gets a few more open, I will photograph it again. These tiny flowers are so hard to photograph.

    Cheers!

    I do't believe there is an fragrance. Honestly though, the cattleyas were stinking so much this afternoon, I could not smell anything but them.

    Ten to eleven years before it bloomed? Wow...that redefines patience!

    Very pretty, Bruce - almost worth the wait!

    We grew them from tiny seedlings. Although, they probably should have bloomed a long time ago. I guess we finally got the conditions right.
