Second year blooming for me, I love the color and fragrance of the flowers!
Reminds me very much of King Alfred daffodils, except better!
Great species! This is the best I have seen from you! Congrats!
Thanks Zack and Tom!
I agree with the daffodil comparison and I suspect they have similar pollinators. While working outside today near the porch where this plant currently resides I saw a small bumblebee hovering around checking out the flowers. It looked like it tried to crawl into one but either didn't fit or was frustrated in some other regard because it quickly left and the pollinia were all in place after its departure.
long before this was classified under cattleya
Beautiful. Great growing, Nat! I'm tempted to try this one. -Stephen
Thanks guys! You should definitely try growing this one, Stephen, the fragrance is outstanding. Many initially pleasant orchid scents grate on me after a while but I can smell this for a long time and it never gets old.
noioi, this species certainly has been moved around a lot by taxonomists. I try not to get invested in particular names but I do like the placement of this in Euchile, it just makes sense to me.
gnathanial i agree with you too
it used to be introduced to thailand but the plant not trived
Bravo! Two flowers Really beautiful.
Thanks Jacob! I wish I could have one in bloom year-round, I miss the fragrance now that the blooms have faded.
Noioi, did anyone try it at higher elevations? It needs a cooler, drier winter to thrive.
