(Stamile 01) 24" EMRe, 5.5 inch, Ev, Tet, Fra. Orchid with plum violet eye and edge. From the hybridizer: "The plum violet eye is almost black at times reaching out from the throat while the huge deep black violet plum border reaches in from the edges leaving but small triangular dollops of orchid color in the petals. Wire the edge of the black violet plum border in white and mark the sepals with a patterned eye and you begin to understand the complexity of this incredibly beautiful flower." 3 way branching, 18-24 buds. Award winner.
