    Laelia Canariensis is a primary hybrid of Laelia anceps x Laelia harpophylla, registered by Ingram in 1906. The three-inch flowers are held well above the compact, narrow growths. While some of these have yellow flowers, this one has a blush of pale orange from L. harpophylla and seems to be the most common clone available.

    It's beautiful. Do you find that the spike length has been reduced compared to the anceps parent?

    These flowers are on a spike about 9 inches tall while there is another spike of flowers that is about 12 inches tall. So, yes, the spikes are shorter than the average Laelia anceps.
