In bloom this morning in a shady greenhouse, this Christmas classic looks similar to the wild Cyp. reginae that grows in our north woods, although under greenhouse conditions, Cardinale is a lot easier to grow. First awarded an HCC/AOS fifty years ago, it tends to bloom right around Christmas.

That is great example of my single favorite phrag. Very nice! Maybe my favorite orchid. I have this and ‘Wilcox’ and if I could have only two phrags, I would keep them.

Angela - I'll probably be dividing this clone late Spring 2021, and I've just put your name in the pot. Have a great Holiday!
