Laelia anceps 'Nina Bonita'
From the slopes of Orizaba, this "little beauty" is unique among Laelia anceps
for its color and miniature flowers and plant. The three inch wide flowers are almost pure-white, with a beautiful and unusual lip: the lip is white in the center with hot-pink margins and yellow at the throat, which is green with red stripes. The plant is remarkable for its miniature height, up to about ten inches tall, and even the flowers stems are significantly shorter than usual, reaching only about twelve inches long. Is it the rare Laelia anceps Percivaliana
type? Whatever it is, you will love it! . Temperature Tolerant. Nov-Dec blooming. Species from Mexico.
