Cymbidium Meglee 'Ms Taipei'
Another of our fragrant, summer blooming, varieties starting to show it's flower spikes. We grow it next to our standard cymbidiums, but it should do equally well in Southern States or in an intermediate greenhouse. This cultivar has been in the trade for years under the above name without proper registration. This led to much confusion since it meant few people knew the actual parentage. In 2001, however, it was properly registered as Miss Taipei Unveiled 1. This gives the parents as sinense and Super Baby (Babylon x ensfolium). Perhaps this accounts for its complex fragrance. Temperature Tolerant. August - September blooming.
