This weeks Orchid of the week is… Cym. Robin ‘Freckles’

Cym. Robin 'Freckles'
Cym. Robin ‘Freckles’

Parentage: Cym Khyber Pass × Cym Doris Aurea

Registered: 1963

The reason why it’s our Orchid of the Week:

Robin adds a very interesting point of difference to my season’s flowering collection. And always draws a comment!

It often divides opinion, with some loving it, and other’s quite willing to leave it! It really is a personal preference….. This Cymbidium plant is also one from my own private collection, and this photo is from the 2022 flowering.

Cym. Robin has been used an impressive 35 times as a parent, and crossed with four species parent plants.

Looking back at the original species ancestors of this plant, using Orchid Roots, Cym. insigne and Cym. lowianum are the main contributors present in the distant background.
