Cymbidium Tags

Among the Cymbidiums in the Sonoma collection are quite a few that originally had name tags. Almost all of them are now missing or un-readable.

I had high hopes that this one would get confirmed once it bloomed. There are two plants. The first tag was probably the one on the plant that was added to the collection and the second a division. Notice that they are spelled differently.

I think that this has now be confirmed as a NOID. I could find no reference to "Cym Leo Lippur" and the description does not match the 3-inch flowers that the plant produced.

Even being a NOID, it is still a pretty flower and goes a long way toward filling the display window with flowers at this time of year. Now that I have a flower picture I will re-tag it with an inventory number so that I will know what to expect from this plant next year.
