Cym Showgirl 1999
Cymbidium Showgirl
July 21.
Showgirl was quiet for a couple of years, putting on new growth over the Summer but seemed reluctant to flower. This year the plant decided to spike in the middle of a very hot Summer here in NJ.  On July 21. I discovered several small spikes emerging.
At first they progressed nicely over the next few weeks and and then to my dismay during another hot spell some of the promising buds turned to brown "mush".  But not all of them - these pictures were taken this week.
The beautiful flowers are sheer pleasure!!!
Five spikes in the works -
