Cymbidium Aradian Sunrise 'Patrice'

Cymbidium Aradian Sunrise 'Patrice' - Flower photo by Richard LindbergIt is not a surprise that I left a "free" orchid show with a lighter wallet. One of the three plants I bought was this Cymbidium Aradian Sunrise 'Patrice'. It was the flower picture that sold it because it was not in bloom and my eye naturally skips big plants.

I Googled the name and checked the RHS database and found no reference. With any other hybrid I would be worried that the tag was wrong, but the world of Cymbidiums churns out so many new crosses that I am not shocked to find nothing about it. And having a single flower in the picture is not ideal but I like the colors.

  1. I got a comment via email from Charles B that the name might be Arcadian Sunrise and pictures make that likely.
