La Scala

EM 37" (Mysterious Ways sib X Paris Fashion)

Violet orchid standards pale to pinkish lavender toward the margins, while pale pink falls, lighter and creamier in the center, carry hafts flushed creamy pink. Beards are flame with white base. Closed standards, lightly waved petal margins. A real production number, with show stalks and multiple buds (up to three in the branches!), causing quite a wait for the fat lady to sing.
Seedling #01-98A
