    This lovely hybrid, habenaria rhodocheila x carnea, a division of the plant recently awarded; the division was a gift from the award-winning owner of the mother plant. Only a few of my habenarias returned form dormancy this year despite the same treatment as always. The flowers are about 1 1/8" across and the most delightful pink, and the mottled foliage most attractive as well.

    Absolutely beautiful. These guys are hard to cultivate but worth the effort

    Very nice. I usually tend toward the species, but it's hard to argue with something like that.

    Do you find it any easier than H. carnea?

    That's the most beautiful Regnieri I have ever seen a photo of. I recently bought a flask of this hybrid from Marni. I hope mine end up at least half this good.
