I purchased this budding Potinara orchid from the Krull-Smith tent at Gardenfest a few weeks ago. It hasn’t fully opened, but looked so pretty when the sun came out today I thought I’d take a picture!

Potinaras are hybrids bred with the best qualities of the Cattleya, Brassavola, Laelia, and Sophronitis generas.  This hybrid is called Potinara Elaine Taylor and the deep pink/red in the picture is exactly what you see in person. (I like when that happens!)

Until next time…..

ps. I’ve got a whopper of a sinus cold and have fallen behind reading and commenting on many of your blogs.  I hope to catch up soon, 🙂

    • Funny you mention the leaves….I was unsure if the color was “right” because this type of hybrid is new to me. When I researched and learned a healthy Potinara has apple green leaves, I was satisfied they were a-ok.
