Stanhopea Tricornis x Insignis
Well, it’s March, beginning of autumn and here in Sydney days getting cooler and my Stanhopea Tricornis x Insignis just opened its flowers. This cross has very beautiful, very delicate sculptured flowers with strong jasmine scent. At this stage it’s developed 3 flower spikes and sent them through the sides of the planter. Each spike has 4 flowers and I always enjoy seeing beautiful stanhopea flowers later in growing season. Last year this variety was flowering well into the end of autumn and I am looking forward seeing more flower spikes.
