A random plant I purchased unflowered at a recent show, and now as it slowly comes into full sail on one small growth I am very happy with the outcome. While I admire them, it has been a very long time since I bloomed out any Maudiae-type crosses, and so maybe it is a lack of recent experience- but I am most excited at the width of the petals. They strike me as the best feature in an otherwise above-average classic expression- and I think this may be a keeper. For reference- NS of bloom is 13.5cm, 6.2cm dorsal, petals 2.8cm wide.

This is a lovely flower with an intense burgundy colouration. What a good random acquisition.
