The Philippine’s very own Waling-waling Orchid (Euanthe sanderiana) has been used in many hybrid crosses with other genera.
Below are specimens of Vanda hybrids in my garden.
Purple is luscious and exotic.
This orchid Euanthe sanderiana arrived in my garden last thursday, April 28 all the way from Davao, Philippines. Even though I already have one in my collection, the waling-waling orchid is always welcome in my garden. Just look at it those flowers (3-4 inches across), and you could just marvel at the creativity of the Maker. The upper sepal and petals are fairly uniform white to rose while the lower sepals are yellow-green and heavily veined with reddish brown. Truly, the waling-waling is an original beauty.
