    Awarded a few days ago. This cross is delenatii x S. Gratrix The flower facing to the side is actually a bit better, not sure why I took the picture this way.

    Judges liked this one (but not the other two leucochilum crosses I brought). Two flowers on one inflorescence, very nice color, excellent shape. 83 points. I would probably have gone a little lower myself, but I buttered them up with the other two lesser plants first so maybe the bar was lowered a bit... :)

    You'll see a fair number of 'Littlefrog Alex' or similar in my clonal names over the last year or so - this represents a plant that I either bought with my friend Alex Challis or rescued from his home after his untimely passing last summer.
