NOID Dendrobium hybrid

NOID Dendrobium hybrid - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThe Sonoma collection has several plants without readable tags. It is also a mature collection where there are many plants with more than one division. Sometimes it is possible to identify one of those when it flowers. I thought this was one of those cases because this plant bloomed and I saw that it had a good tag. I grabbed it to bring it home to photograph it and to make a tag for the other plant with identical flowers.

Once I read the tag I saw my hopes fade. It is not always possible to predict flower color by the name but in this case, I would have to say that this is probably the wrong tag for this plant. It read "Den David Copperfield 'Golden Sunrise' x Palolo Sunshine 'Yellow Dragon'."
