    An Aussie, of course. Small flowers, about 15mm but has the nice feature, like so many Australian orchids, opf flowering from the same cane, year after year. Also quite free with new growths. I feel that when say double in size - another year or two ? it may be worth showing.
    Perfumed in sunshine (only) - producing it takes a lot of energy apparently, and if your hoped-for pollinator only flys in the sun ( a butterfly, say ? ) then there is no point in wasting your energy when they are not about.
