Stanhopea graveolens x greerii

This handsome stanhopea just finished it's flowering season. It's a very interesting cross of stanhopea graveolens and stanhopea grerii. I've been patiently waiting to see this beauty in flower for a while, since it have such a great parentage.

It have perfectly sculptured flowers and a kind of luminous appearance, special and strong heady scent reminiscent of herbs and many spices - there are many layers to it's perfume that comes in waves.

It's a beautiful addition to my ever-growing stanhopea collection and I am looking forward learning with it and seeing more of it's special, majestic blooms.
