    In 1999 purchased a Don Wimber with this parent. The flower is not a typical Don Wimber. Just wondering if anyone also purchased this plant from Bloomfield? Does anyone know if this is actually a cross made with Jersey or daleassandio? I know at the time some of the plants coming from the Eric Young Foundation were probally not labelled right as the confusion with besseae.
    I have contacted Joe but never heard back from him. He probally does not really know also.
    Thanks for any input.

    Do you have a picture of your plant? I am just curious to see how much it is different from the typical DW.

    Thank you Russel. I am pretty sure OrchidIsa has a DW with dalessandroi in the background because its shape is very unusual.
