Cymbidium Orchid - "Frankie Valli"



Another one of my beautiful cymbidium orchids flowering at the moment - it's called "Frankie Valli" and it's one of the new orchids, only been around since late 2009 and promising to be another winner in the cymbidium world.

I purchased couple of advanced seedlings early this year , hopping to see something different and unusual and I think this one meeting all of my expectations - it's bold, spectacular, confident, uncompromising, "like me or live me" type. Love the colors of the flower, even though there are only a few of them at the moment, since it's first blooming season. As the plant matures, there is a promise of long arching flower spikes up to 1.5m long, but that's in the future - for now it's just appreciation of this beautiful creation that brings smile to everyone who see it.
I think, Frankie Valli can say it better than me... and a short trip down the memory lane...

You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.
You'd be like Heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

Pardon the way that I stare.
There's nothing else to compare.
The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak..,

    I wonder why they named it Frankie Valli. I have only one Cymbidium specimen but I'm not sure what species.
