Den Aussie Parade Carrot splash x spec Windermere

orchidnickFebruary 10, 2014

Another beautiful Australian Star. Even though they all sort of look the same, one cannot get tired of looking at them as they have an innate sense of beauty. I don't know the genealogy of this one, I'm sure Arthur will tell us. I do know that Dendrobium speciosum Windermere HCC/??? is one of the parents. No surprise there as Windermere seems to be one of the parents of every single Au plant I have.

Windermere must be a fundamental Mormon polygamist as they've crossed it with EVERYTHING, and I mean everything. The only plants that haven't been mated with Windermere are plants still in flask. I'm sure one of the components of Vi--gra (Gardenweb won't let me post the full name as it may offend some one who doesn't watch TV and see the hourly commercials) is ground up Windermere.

An yet another view. Since Windermere can produce over and over, I think at least 2 extra views are in order.

You can shorten the name somewhat to Den. Australian Robbie McInnes. The shape comes from Dendrobium tetragonum which seems to be dominant. It is a keeper.

Here is another example where tetragonum has been used and the same shape appears, though apart from the tetragonum the other ancestors were different and no speciosum.

Sorry, I do not know why the clone âÂÂWindermereâ was used so much in breeding.
Dendrobium Sliver Eye.
