This big fat pink thing is one of my favorite primary hybrids consistently blooming twice a year. Flowers are huge, long lasting, fragrant and exhibit the best characteristics of both parents.The true pink color is even more saturated than these photos show due to back lighting. Everyone should have at least one.CF2E2CA3-8FBA-4179-8F1B-F4F6278745D7.jpeg A254B9E9-FF0C-47DB-83B9-A05CCEF22FA3.jpeg

I would find room for this in my greenhouse; which says a lot coming from a Paph/Phrag addict with limited greenhouse space.

I also like this primary hybrid. How long have you had it and do you know the parents used in breeding?
