Default Rlc. George King 'Serendipity'

Interesting cross name! And also interesting clonal name too. I haven't seen the flowers of this popular one with own eyes yet, but pinkish apricot colours are said to be very nice. I had a juvenile one for a while. But it's going to take a while ----- to get to flowering size that is heheh. But fortunately was able to acquire a bigger one. Some fast tracking for this case heheheh.

The bigger one was originally in bark. Transferred to scoria on arrival (through the mail).

Cross was made by G. A. King - I assume George - registered in 1970.

That cultivar has a number of awards in Australia, Brazil, and the US.

I definitely understand why you are happy to find a larger one. It is always such a long wait until they reach maturity. I buy the younger Cattleyas and always have to wait four or five years for the first bloom. Since I switched to smaller Cattleyas just two years ago, the wait has been driving me crazy.

Know what you mean LM! Getting to the flowering size can take quite a while! It's sort of like watching orchids grow hehehe

I like that plant so much that last year I bought some small ones and two are already going to flower, we will see if I am lucky with the flowering. Yesterday I went out and found in Lowe’s, in 4 ”pots the Dinard Heaven that I know is not easy to grow because I have one that has given me a lot of work, this one is beautiful, I also acquired the Hawaiian rose My Valentine, if I didn't have it

I have heard of and seen pics of the Lc. Dinard 'Blue Heaven'. The features of that flower - including the beautiful violet colours are remarkable!

In the RHS orchid register, I was able to find Rlc. Hawaiian Rose and also Rlc. Paradise Rose. The Hawaiian Rose was registered in 1953 ....... nice acquisition!!!!!

Thanks for mentioning you grow this one too Diane. The apricot colours are definitely going to be worth it. And very nice to hear that they're doing fine.
