Cymbidium Orchid - On the Prowl " Glamour Puss"
This beautiful cymbidium orchid currently in bloom - it's called On the Prowl " Glamour Puss" - another beautiful addition to my cymbidium orchids collection.
I purchased "Glamour Puss" seedling some time ago and been waiting for a while to see it's flowers and this year it's first flowering season. It's very nice cymbidium with very round, large blooms and nice color lip and petals, with many markings splashed on the petals. It would probably need couple of more flowering seasons and a bit of maturity to reveal it's beauty in full, still there is a promise here of something special and unusual. As the flowers maturing, they seems to take this luminous quality, very delicate, yet showy.
We are near the end of cymbidium flowering season, a few of my late flowering cymbidiums have flower spikes, ready to flower and to finish this wonderful flowering season. As usual, it's anticipation to see other orchid species and to welcome new one's in my ever expanding collection.
