I can recognize that as labiata with more full petals than my semialba labiata. The award makes sense.

Notice the different coloration of the labellum as the lighting conditions change! Purple to magenta to rose!
That’s why a written description is essential to describe the color better despite what the pictures say lol.

Leslie, there was a period where AOS award descriptions used color numbers to describe plants. If everyone had the correct color wheel (or chart) to refer to it would be an accurate way to convey coloration. That must have been too tedious to keep up or judges kept losing their color wheels/charts because none of the recent years ever have this information.
