Phalaenopsis stobartiana, n. sp.

A curious plant in the way of P. amethystina, with very uncommon colours for a Phalaenopsis. Sepals and tepals of a beautiful apple-green colour, ultimately yellowish green. Lip with the lateral partitions white with yellow and amethyst coloured, the middle lobe totally amethyst coloured. This bright amethyst colour finally changes into a nearly cinnabarine red. The base of the white column is also amethyst coloured, I had a branch or top of inflorescence with eight flowers, a little smaller than those of P, equestris (rosea). That is all I know. Perhaps I may learn more one day. It is dedicated to its possessor, Mr. William C. Stobart, Etherley Lodge, Darlington, and it was grown by Mr. L. Hartley. H. G. Rchb. f.
