Purchased from SVO four or five years ago as a large seedling, I now know how it got the name. The leaves are almost 40 cm long and 6.5 cm wide. The cross is Susan Booth "SVO" HCC/AOS x Saint Swithin "Black Rook". The flower spike is 60 cm long and the individual flowers have a natural spread of 21 cm. The vertical is 24 cm and the dorsal width is 6 cm. The substance of the flower is very heavy and waxy and the plant is a strong grower.

I buy plants from SVO at least once a year. They have an annual sale where the prices are reduced and you get additional discounts on volume and AOS membership. Most of the plants I have received are comparable in quality to this one.

Those are really striking flowers that grab your attention. Great pronunced stripes.

I do have a plant of this hybrid which I have been growing for years. So slow. It did come out of quarantine though and has taken time to reestablish. The leaves aren't wide like yours.
