Where did you find the deep purple? Seems this is a strange time for Phal. blooms. I
only have two blooming, but many shooting out roots and leaves all over the bench. The
deep raspberry is gorgeous. Fragrant?

The purple one is the best indigo violacea I have. A selfing from Crystal Star.

Some of my novelties can bloom late fall.

Very nice. I only have one in bloom at this time of year. My problem is that with one greenhouse you can can't keep all of the plants happy at the same time. Due to the cost of oil, I keep it fairly cold threw out the late fall and winter. My vandas and phals hate it but the cuthbertsonii and masdevallias love it. Most of the paphs. don't mind.
