Stanhopea Ronsard





This attractive stanhopea from my collection finished flowering not long ago – it’s one of the showy and striking stanhopea hybrids loved and admired by stanhopea collectors and lovers all over the world. Its stanhopea Ronsard and it was crossed by M Lecoufle of France in late 1980’s.


This handsome cross is of wardii x oculata producing intensely fragrant large flowers of beautiful shape, size and color. The blooms are strong yellow color with many maroon spots and large maroon eyes. The scent is very strong, penetrating, sweet and spicy with many pleasant undertones to it.

Another special stanhopea to love and to admire and for stanhopea collector one more majestic orchid to adore.
