Pretty picture: Phragmipedium Peruflora's Cirila Alca

Happy Thanksgiving (where legally and culturally applicable)!

I have a note on this one saying "full-size pic is AMAZING." I checked it out, and -- I'm right. It's a pretty good photo. So check that out if you are so inclined.

The ancestry on this one is Phrag. kovachii x Phrag. dalessandroi, if you care about such things. Kovachii is more or less this color (a little more purple than this), with a weird shape that I can't really describe except to note that the word that comes to mind is "over-inflated." Dalessandroi gives the cross the pointier, more compact shape, but only slightly influences the color. Or at least that's how it looks from Google.
