A primary hybrid between mooreana and lawrenceana. It’s a bit of a rampant grower if you provide warm conditions but it will take cooler conditions as this is a hybrid between a cool and warm grower.
This plant went outside for the summer and was a bit forgotten but it didn’t stop it throwing up eight new growths in the autumn, up from two last year.
The plant is quite handsome with long deep green leaves and spikes appears in the middle of developing new growths.
The flowers are creamy and has a faint but noticeable freesia scent, inherited from mooreana.
it receives plenty of water and sits with the phrags for most of the year.

It should if the increase in the number of growths is anything to go by.
The plant itself is quite handsome with long dark green leaves.
There are two more leads with spikes just showing so more flowers to come,
