Dockrillia are a favorite group of orchids and I’ve seen many Dockrillia flowers, of both species and hybrids. When I saw Dockrillia (Dendrobium) Rosemary Jupp in bloom for the first time, I was astounded for its clear beauty and unique ambience. The flower color is subtle — rather bluish with maroon striping on the backside of the petals.
This is an older (registered in 1974) primary hybrid of Dockrillia (Dendrobium) striolata and Dockrillia (Dendrobium) teretifolia and not so common in cultivation (at least in the USA). We grow Dockrillia (Dendrobium) Rosemary Jupp both mounted and in a small pot filled with hydroton; it is happy both ways!
