This beautiful stanhopea is rather rare, not often seen and another recent addition to my collection. It grows in hot humid forests of Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and mid-season flowering variety for our climate.
Its flowers are huge with beautiful burgundy color marks and scent is very strong vanilla/cinnamon. The flowers are quite hard and fleshy, but appear very delicate and graceful.
This season it developed four flower spikes with four flowers on each spike making it quite a display of flowers and scents. This orchid is much desired addition to any stanhopea collection.
