Phalaenopsis Ever-spring King
'T.F.' HCC/AOS, 79pts
(Phal. Chih Shang's Stripe x Phal. Golden Peoker)   Exhib: Sedona Orchids

We are approaching the peak of Phalaenopsis season so this week week's update is a selection of slides from the archive. We offer a Phal. Solar Flare awarded at a Tropical Orchid Society show almost 30 years ago, a peloric Phal. Golden Gift from 1990, Ever-spring King from 2004 and other "then-cutting edge" Phal hybrids. I find it very interesting to follow the development of modern Phalaenopsis hybrids through these early trend setters, some of which became valuable building blocks for the future. Perhaps more than any other group of hybrid orchids, Phals have evolved lightyears since the days of whites, pinks and French spots.

Although some of the early Phal. Golden Peoker hybrids such as this had problems with poor texture on the petals, as a parent it gave breeders a a gene pool for creating harlequin phals.
