Meet the Gorgeous Vuylstekeara orchid!

This gorgeous and unusual hybrid is still thriving and reliably flowering almost every year since I first purchased at White Rose many years ago.

Vuylstekeara is an intergeneric hybrid between three orchid genera, Cochlioda, Miltonia and Odontoglossum.  It is very hardy and produces nice long sprays of star-shaped speckled blooms.

The photograph below depicts a newly opened bloom where the petals and sepals have not begun to recurve like the flowers shown in the photo above.
