Blooming sized.  This group of purpuratas were bred by Main Street using the FCC purpurata 'Nancy' as a pollen parent.  To date every one has bloomed as a flammea variety and look great.  Some, however, may not be striatas.  We do not take our orchids to judging (just not enough time) but these look awardable to us.


A chance to have a purpurata that has not been cloned.  Each is seed crossed so it's a chance for all you purpurataholics to have something unique.
