I love these. They are getting more popular at the shows.
Great growing, so many blooms.
I call them tulip orchids.
Saw some pink ones.

Did a little web browsing and found they are indeed known, as tulips and have a strong scent of cinnamon.

Thanks for supplying lovely photos and name.

As usual any good looking orchid gets highjacked by one of my daughters and I get to see it again when it's out of bloom. This time she took a photo. Here are all 8 flowers open on the dubia. They open a bright yellow but change to a champagne color prior to fading. It's not my daughters photography, they really change to that color.
