I could not get a picture that would do the color justice but this is close.
Funny how the modern cameras still have problems with orchid purples. There is one hybridiser in Australia who has done a lot of breeding with encyclias, maybe because of the perfume and ease of culture.
I do appreciate the ease of encyclias. I am looking for a cordigera this show season.
I like it. It's a pretty one and will bloom for quite a while. That's what I like about dendrobiums.
