Temperature tolerant and compact size with a gentle fragrance as sweet as honey! One of our hardiest orchids, this Australian species is a prolific grower and great bloomer; producing upright-to-arching sprays, each with several, brightly colored dainty flowers.
With foliage usually standing between 6 to 10 inches tall, and densely growing, even the huge decades-old specimens typically remain less than 2 feet across: making them delightfully manageable. The subtle, sweet aroma of the blooms is magnified on large specimens by the sheer number of flowers, making large specimens both spectacular and fragrant. A terrific orchid for beginners and experts alike!
