Cymbidium atropurpureum (Lindl.) Rolfe 1903 SECTION Cymbidium Hunt 1970.
Found widely in southern S E Asia. Flowers have a distinctive smell - to some rancid coconut but to me more attractive than that.
My plant seldom flowers but has managed to produce two flowering racemes this week with another just appearing. The flowering stems develop very quickly - within a day or so from absent to flowering. The flower is very attractive when first opened with a distinctive white lip marked with burgundy. This quickly fades to a yellowish/brown
