Cymbidium orchid - "Dream Therapy"
Another beautiful cymbidium orchid just finished it's flowering season and it's a cross of cymbidium "Dream Therapy" - very nice and unusual. It's parentage is quite complicated, giving a kind of two-tone effect to the blooms. It's a cross of Dream Therapy x Eazan Shining "Ginger Kisses" x Glittering Gold .
The flowers have a bit of oriental feel to them, displaying interesting color of bronze/ yellow and a touch of green with wide white/red middle and the whole effect of the blooms have very pleasing to the eye combination. It also have very nice light scent that is difficult to describe, it smells of "freshness" - crisp, clean and bright.
Some time ago I purchased couple of seedlings of this orchid hopping to see unusual flower and this season it's flowering first time. The plant is still small and as it matures I expect to see more of these interesting and special blooms.
