Default Phal. LL Blue Macaw

Phalaenopsis LL Blue Macaw (Phalaenopsis Lioulin Blue Peacock x Phalaenopsis KS Blue Ludde)

Notice the lavender gradient around the center of the flower.

The photos are taken with a diffuser so the light is even, anything resembling light reflections is actually the variation of color throughout the flower. The top of the lip is deep lavender color that seems to get lighter across the petals to end in an indigo/brick color on the edges. The bottom of the lip is very pale lavender. Bloom just opened, scent is very faint at the moment reminiscent of limoncello.

Thought it was a bit too magenta, since it has 6 species in its background I thought maybe the wrong coerulea was hybridized with the wrong indigo, leading to magenta. But now that the flower is fully open, I think it looks pretty Coerulea-like to me.

Took photos from different angles to show the variety of color throughout the flower.

Second bloom on the same spike. Bit bigger, more rounded, and slightly more fragrant with the same daytime Limoncello scent.
