Default V. Gordon Dillon "Lea" x V. merrillii

I got this plant in flower back in September from Smiley's Orchids. It is now blooming again under my care. I love the color and markings. I shot these pictures without flash. I think they portraits the true color of the flowers.

Beautiful blooms, Naoki. How big is the plant? Any scent to the flowers?

This was taken when I received the plant in September. It should give you an idea of the plant size.

I just noticed that it has a "root beer" scent.

I especially love the deep color of your blooms. I have the same one but my 1st blooming was much more to the red side. Hopefully the next time it blooms again..... I hope it will be soon, the color will be more like yours. I would like the Gordon Dillon 'Lea to be a bit more dominate.

Congrats on a beautiful re-blooming.
