Phal Gretchen (gigantea 'Ku5-2' X stuartiana (yellow-09))

Flower photos shared by Alain Brochart on Feburary 26, 2015. Alain bloomed this from my flask. I think we need to have Phal stuartiana yellow as pod parent to get that yellow to come through. But nonetheless this is a pretty flowers and I'm glad that Alain shared these pictures with us.

You're welcome Peter. I'm pleased you posted the pictures. I can add that the gigantea fragrance is present in those flowers, but only a light fragrance.

I also believe that the stuartiana should be used as pod parent to get the yellow background on the progeny.

I love this one but I like purple anyway. So far from what I have looked at it is my favorite.
