Stanhopea wardii var Taylor El Toro




Another flowered stanhopea from my collection. This beautiful orchid not often seen in cultivation even though it’s been around since 1970’s. It displays very large, luminous flowers with strong, heady spicy/ cinnamon scent.


The flowers are quite beautiful and showy in white/yellow/green tones with small dark orange specs distributed all over and the plant that is vigorous and large.


For our climate, its mid-season flowering stanhopea, currently flowering and developing new leaves at same time making it great addition to any stanhopea collection.

FAbulous. I've never seen them here, but there's an orchid show coming up soon, and I will go see what the collectors are growing.
