Phalaenopsis Center Stage 'Pine Ridge Cockleshell' AM/AOS, a peloric Phalaenopsis
A truly unique Phalenopsis. This peloric Phalaenopsis shows what happens when you get unexpected symetry in a normally zygomorphic flower. The plant that won the award from the AOS was exhibited by Irma Saldana. It is notewhorty because it is said to be one of the most estable peloric Phalaenopsis. Seeing one in full bloom is a delight, to quote Irma Saldana, "it looks as it is made of honey colored lace".
