    Default Today, I like this one best

    I'm enjoying this plant's blooms right now; first time it has bloomed for me--I broke off its first spike by mistake last summer. The flowers are really large compared to my others of this type. About 2.5" across.

    The tag is a little cryptic since some of the letters are scratched off. Here is the part I can read:

    Odm. reiche***** X Wils. San*ee Lakes

    Hope that was helpful! LOL

    The Wilsonara part is easy, Wils. Santee Lakes. I'm not sure about the Ondontoglossum, there is an Odm. reichenheimii, but it's brown with a purple lip, which doesn't appear in your hybrid.

    It doesn't show well in the photo, but there is a lavendar edge to the lip.
