    I've bought two cyps at the local gardencenter - may get a few more :D
    They have no names on them though, which bothers me.
    Any ideaes what this is?

    My guess is pubescens. Which garden center sells cyps?

    Thank you. I guess it's just "Hybrid" then :D

    I think that's the best and a wise decision. Every other name would be just a guess except C. kentuckiense hybrid.

    Lucky. I wish more garden centers here in the US sold Cyps! Even if they were hybrids, it would be most welcome :). Congrats on the blooms. Plants look very healthy.

    OMG: you are ALSO going for garden orchids now!!!! Speedily accellerating down the slippery slope!!!! :p:p:D:D

    Very nice flower, though - and from 'what we can see of the plant' ("Wink, wink, notch, notch, say no more, say no more"), it looks pretty well grown!

    Kind regards, Jens
