    Outstanding! Great that the real long petals got passed through. (Maybe the 3N influence...) Grande x wallisii is Penns Creek Cascade.

    Thanks, guys. Is it really Penn's Creek? I swear, I have *got* to get more diligent about looking these things up. When I buy them, they' re usually not named yet, so I just go by the old tag. Thanks for the update, Jason.

    Parkside had a Penn's Creek I was considering *ages* ago, and if I am not mistaken, Peter talked me out of it...(not for me, but for my mom - went w/ the MM after all, ease of growing!) at any rate they do list it as "Phrag. Penn's Creek Cascade (Grande v. Gigantea [4N] x wallisii)" I think the one they originally listed was an awarded one from Wickford Orchids in RI.
