Dendrobium Hilda Poxon

The hybrid Dend Hilda Poxon (Dend tetragonum x Dend speciosum) can have a variety of expressions as there are numerous different D speciosums one can choose from to create this popular hybrid. Mine is simply labeled D Hilda Poxon varient. I don't think it's a clonal name just indicating this is one of the numerous HPs.

What's interesting about this plant is that the flowers will change as the seasons progress. It will bloom off and on until Feb with a big flush coming in Feb. As the temperatures drop in the fall more and more red will come through from the tetragonum. Right now there is no red at all in the flower other than in the throat. I will post pictures as the month go by to demonstrate this change.

Stay tuned till Feb 2014. The next election will be well under way by the time this one stops blooming.

No change yet still blooming the same way but a small plant had it's first bloom. Another Hilda Poxon. Since it is small that will probably be it's only bloom. I bumped this one up so the 2 can be compared.

Now it's beginning to change. The red is coming through as it has been getting cold. There will be more red by Jan or Feb.
