73 and still gardening

Candy Stripes

This variety of Phalaenopsis Candy Stripes just bloomed this morning. Its two white petals and three pale yellow sepals have faint to deep purple stripes and dots.

I could say that one of the nicest upgrades in Phalaenopsis orchids is the introduction of hybrids such as  white, pink or golden flowers with stripes in pink, purple or brown covering the entire flower or just on the margins.
