Stanhopea embreei x wardii


This beautiful stanhopea is another lovely cross from my collection. I’ve acquired it quite a few years ago and every year it flowers when all other stanhopea’s finished its flowering season.
It’s quite vigorous grower and consistently sends multiple flower spikes every season with 4 or 5 flowers on every spike. The coloring is pastel yellow/white with pale yellow centre and dark small eyes with tiny spots. The scent is mild vanilla that lingers about for a long time.
Here in Sydney we are at the end of stanhopea’s flowering season and all of my plants busy at the moment with developing new growth and new leaf’s.
