    This is an EYOF plant bought many years ago from Ratcliffes with a stratospheric pedigree:-
    Eric Young 4n ‘Mont Millais’ AM/RHS x Hanne Popow 4n ‘Jersey’ AM/RHS.
    As far as I know it is not a selected clone.
    As is the way with tetraploids, it grew slowly and has taken several years to get to this stage. Maybe about half the full size.
    There are now three leads and two flower spikes.
    The photo is not exactly true to life. The colour is much more orange than shown.
    With this parentage there is quite a bit of variation in flower shape but this one is much more towards the Hanne Popow parent.
    I am still in two minds about the plant. For me the flower is just ok.
    Maybe it is still one for the future,

    Yay besseae hybrids!
    Super hybrid but yes, that will take a long time to reach it's full potential. Is Jersey much warmer and sunnier than where you live? I never understood how they get their plants to grow so fast-like they do in Hawaii!?

    Eric,
    It is a tiny island off the south west coast of England.
    No frosts and little chance of high summer temperatures.
    A very equable climate.
    They are just very professional at growing their orchids!

    Eric,
    It is why we bought the place ten years ago.
    The building was an unloved 70’s bungalow but there was a full half acre of garden with several mature trees. Heaven!

    Nice Daffs too! All my early and mid-season bloomers are getting hit hard by
    enormous amounts of rain, but Daffs are tough. I'm looking forward to the
    late season blooms of Sir Winston Churchill...divine fragrance and gorgeous
    flowers.

    A little more than a year late here. Anybody know if there are sources/nurseries that sell Grouville in Australia? This one is elegance all-around.
