    This species, or at least my plant, doesn't seem to have a particular flower orientation (not resupinate or non-resupinate). This has been a fairly fast grower and good bloomer for me.

    I like it, makes the Leptotes bicolor seem common.

    Beautiful - I hope these other leptotes species become more available soon. This one is really cute!

    Kelly, I think this is lovely. I've successfully grown a few leptotes species. I wonder if you know where this might be available for sale?

    Andy's orchids used to have it, but it's not listed any more. They may still have some since it is named after Harry (of Andy's orchids). It is indeed a beautiful species, Kelly.

    Hi Mary. As Naoki said, it is named after Harry Phillips, the brother of Andy Phillips of Andy's orchids. I actually bought mine from Harry at their booth at the Sacramento Orchid show several years ago. As for emailing them, they are sometimes very slow to reply to emails. You would be more successful calling them. They would likely give you an immediate answer. Good luck.
