Awarded at the Cali show here in Colombia with an AM of 82 points. Not only is the flower having a good shape, but it possessed a beautiful lime green color with a contrasting pink lip from two red parents!!

This can only occur when two recessive genes from the grandparent of green manzuriis from both sides match up (like a blue eyed mixed Cuban).

Spectacular genetics at play.

Bred and grown by Dr. David Manzur himself, the discoverer of Phragmipedium manzurii.
