    The nearest to a true red as I have ever seen in a cymbidium.
    A first flowering of a seedling I bought a few years ago before the once famous nursery went bust for a second time - they recently went bust for a third and I think last time, and goodness knows what has happened to their stocks.
    I expect I shall see them dribbling out at local garden centres foi a time.
    Sad, but always the way of the world. Orchid nurseries in a third generation of the same owners are very rare - in UK at any rate. I know there is one here, and I know another in France, but most of the names from my early orchid days are long gone . There were 12 orchid nurseries in UK 50 years ago, now there is only one "proper"one, and a few dilettantes .
