Wow, what a colorful and intensely floriferous show this hybrid can create in early spring! As you can see in the last photo, Dendrobium Victorian Blush tends to open all of its flower spikes at once, for a short-lived (two week), but brilliant bloom.
Dendrobium Victorian Blush is a hybrid of Dendrobium kingianum and Dendrobium June Mac. It is a bit taller than the average (taller) Dendrobium kingianum with a remarkably dense flush of flowers on each spike. Blooms in mid-late March. We grow Dendrobium Victorian Blush outdoors in the shadehouse with our other Dendrobium kingianum. Also like the other Dendrobium kingianum, this orchid is potted in hydroton (clay pellets) and grows vigorously.
