Full Description

TB 36″ M-L

From Lloyd Austin’s catalog for 1965: “Flowers not large, but borne in profusion! Has slender, lightly bearded (sometimes frilled) orchid horns, arising from orange-yellow beards – and oftentimes ending in delightful spoons. Standards closed, fluted medium orchid; falls orchid washed with a deeper rose tone and an overall pattern of darker rose-orchid striping. Sweet honey fragrance. This will be the focus of attention in any garden!”
