    this is a bit of an old one but I like it. Does anyone know if this is being used as a parent?

    I'm a big fan of it, too! The foliage is probably one of my favorite of any Habenaria just because it's so simple, compact, and organized looking.

    There are two registered grex with Mayfly. One is May Tanager (Mayfly x Tanager) and the other is Flame Tanager (Oriole x Mayfly). I have made a few crosses with it myself, but it doesn't tend to set pod readily and, when it does, the seed is often sterile.
