    It is a plant I have flowered several times in the past, and although the label has gone walk about, I shall remember it one of these days - especially if some kind soul gives me a nudge, like I think its so and so...
    Obviously an Oncidium - haha - this is where the Kew gymnastics with names does come in to be helpful ! Otherwise I should have to say, maybe its an Odontcidium, or could it be a Colmanara, and so on...

    It does look a lot like some clones of (Colmanara/Odontocidium/Oncostele) Wildcat. But I think it might be Ever-Lasting (Wildcat x tigrinum). I'm sure there are some other Wildcat offspring and cousins that are very similar. Like a little extra sunshine in the cloudy days of March.

    I agree with Ron & Kirk -- definitely appears to be a Wildcat.

    It looks like one of the varieties of Odcdm Wildcat.
