You Grow Tulips, I Grow Orchids
C. skinneri '66th St', you saw this before but this is the pinkest.
C skinneri 'David Jordon' has a dark purple spot at the bottom of the lip and when the flower is older it shows some pink around the fringes. This has not been judged, nor has '66th St'.
C skinneri ' Lizzie' AM/AOS was given the AM as a alba and at the time it was pure white. This color only came up when I put it in very high light. All three of these albas will be pure in a greenhouse. If you want them pink you need a tropical sun light.
C. skinneri 'Cherokee' is in the market, and the other three are one of a kind that I have in my garden.
