margarite holm 134
(Fremont, CA, USA)
Had a smaller orchid plant with the label, "Margarite Holm 134" or "Marguerite Holm 134".
I believe it was a Cymbidium or a Cattleya, though the leaves reminded me more of a Cymbidium. The petals were all about the same size and shape--more triangular edged, not curved. The flowers were about three inches across and were white with about 50-60% coverage of a deep purple coloring, like purple splotches, but they were pretty patterned-looking, not random. The orchid had a slight fragrant aroma to it. It bloomed yearly around mid-February to end of April.
I absolutely loved this orchid and we had it for seven years when it went through a spell of negligence and didn't get watered for several weeks. Please help me find it!
Thanks so much!
Attached is the closest thing I could find on the web. My orchid had the same shape leaves as this one I found, just imagine the purple splotching being all over each petal.
