One of our most memorable and floriferous Miltonia
species, with each spike capable of blooming 6 to 8 three-inch flowers. Rich, chocolate-brown markings densely cover tawny sepals and petals, and provide contrast to the bright-white lip and dusky purple throat of this flower. These plants are very willing to produce multiple flower spikes, and its temperature-tolerance makes it a great companion to outdoor Cymbidiums
, or Cattleyas
. . Temperature Tolerant. September-October blooming. Species from Southeastern Brazil.
