Default Blc. Young Kong 'Sun #16'

Large, showy flowers in the yellow line. Also very fragrant. The hybrid has been registered in 1991, seventeen years ago, so it is not that young !

Very cool color combo! I like how the little splash of purple really brings out the butter yellow of the petals. Just wish I could smell it!

I love the colour on this one, Mauro! Such a delicate yellow and the lip really heightens the contrast.

I love the colors, too. No doubt about it, they scream Easter!

But, what I really love about this flower is the frills. It's dressy, has a formal look to it. Just my kind of floof!

I had a chance to order this clone a few weeks ago and I didn't because the picture on the Carmela site showed a flower with really bad ventral sepals. Your flower is perfect. Now I'm kicking myself for not ordering it.

Very nice! Though the "Young Kong" is not a young one, a lot of orchid lovers still grow them here.
