Stanhopea oculata x nigroviolacea






This beautiful stanhopea cross of oculata and nigroviolacea just finished it's flowering season. Both parents splendidly represented in this cross and it flowers with large sculptured blooms that have heavenly scent of vanilla, marshmallow and a touch of chocolate.

The blooms have many dark pink color markings and splashes on pale pink background and flowers very nicely shaped and defined.

I am sure this cross will be another welcome addition to any stanhopea collector who appreciates these dramatic and striking orchids.
