Grand Spider Orchid hybrid

Family: Orchidaceae
Genus: Caladenia
Species: speciosa x huegelii
Main Flower Colour: White

Description

This is the biggest orchid I've seen this year , with very long sepals and petals. It is a cross between the grand and the sandplain spider orchids. The fringing is also very long, a giveaway from the sandplain spider orchid. At this undisclosed location it can be hard to find pure strains of the two parents.

Flowering start in September and ends in October.

Identification

The main flower colour is white.
