    Default can I get an ID on this orchid???

    Had this guy for about 12-15 years. It was in the scrap pile when my mother worked as a florist and so it came to live with me. Not a fan of the colors, but it's an enthusiastic bloomer 50-70 flowers once a year and has fantastic fragrance. always thought it might be a species oncidium ,but maybe an inter-genetic. No idea. Can anyone help?Name:  DSC_0044_fhdr.jpg

    Used to be called Colmanara Jungle Monarch. Now is an Oncidium ( but still Jungle Monarch, of course) , since all the variuous genera used to make the intergeneric Colmanara, have been merged into Oncidium.

    Seems to be a lot of variation in spotting and petal width on this one.

    Fragrance is strong, sweet and incredible too.i can smell it several rooms away. I love it, not sure I ever would, because of the colors, but I do.
