Dendrobium kingianum

Dendrobium kingianum (Dendrobium kingianum)

5 April 2013
Blossomed for the first time

Flowers are tiny (15-20mm approx?) but very fragrant.
Meanie gave me the ID (good man!)

Looks very much like a Dendrobium kingianum (or cultivar thereof), possibly "Winter Beauty". I say possibly "Winter Beauty" as there seems to be a fair amount of confusion over that name with it sometimes being attributed to "Berry Oda"...................

Winter Beauty?

Berry Oda?

You're super kind Meanie!!
Thanks so much!!!!!

Mine is not as pink as your "Berry Oda" and your "Winter Beauty" has darker pink patterns than mine. At any rate, I definitely think it's Dendrobium kingianum of some kind. I'm very happy to know the proper name, not just "orchid" :o)

Thank you once again for taking your time and give me the ID. I'm deeply grateful for your help :-)

That's beautiful! I like that it has a fragrance. I have the plain species of Dedrobium kingianum. It bloomed a couple of months ago and doesn't have a fragrance.

Meanie, thanks for the additional info!

Delonix1, have you ever uploaded yours on GoY? If yes, I'll take a look.

Yes, it blooms every winter out in my backyard.

Here's the flowers from this past winter.
