    I find it interesting to speculate what each parent contributed to the hybrid. Mostly it is denisoniana, but the Aerides comes out in the lip colour I suppose.
    Aerides lawrenceana was named for a man who was President of the RHS at the time, also a member of our Parliament, etc., ( Major Sir Trevor Lawrence MP) He trained as a doctor ( medical) and worked in India for 10 years before succeeding to the title when his father died . He was very interested in science - especially orchid science, in the early days of hybridising and was chair at a big RHS conference in 1899 which is now regarded as the first ever International Conference on the science of genetics. By the way, he was not short of money ; according to a book in my possession he paid an enormous amount of money for the first plant seen in England , at an auction, which was then named in his honour as Aerides lawrenceana - the sum would be equivalent to many thousands of pounds sterling today - those were the days of orchid mania, when they were only grown by millionaires, Kings and Emperors....

    Nice colour combination and must be very frangrant. I have seen this primary hybrid before, but Aerides lawrenciae was dominating in the cross as it was mostly purple colour so I didn't buy it. I like yours better because you can see yellow from Vanda denisoniana and purple lip from Aerides lawrenciae. Hopefully, I will find another one with this colour someday.
