Also since Eric is going to ask about whole plant shots.....



There's a lot of pearcei/ecuadorensis in there, but also:
richteri (I think actually tagged as amazonica)
schlimii
besseae
hirtzii
klotcheanum
longifolium
fischeri
lindleyanum

I like the markings as well. It's a well presented flower.
I think I'm slowly beginning to like the green flowered
Phrags.

Interesting... Is it richterii x self on the tag?
I've posted this flower about a half dozen times since 2007. I'm not sure if the tag is legible anymore, but I think it was originally labeled as amazonica 'green giant Xsib'

Just poking around on the internet and see that Phrag richteri 'green giant' was used by OZ to make a lot of hybrids.

This plant is a sib cross of Oz's green giant richteri so the taxonomy ID is a good as what they sold to Helen Hirsch 10+ years ago.
