The Central Vancouver Island Orchid Society’s Annual Show and Sale was a great event with beautiful plants everywhere. A couple of these were exceptional, and were granted AOS awards after their submission for judging.
The beautiful Dendrobium Nora Tokunaga ‘Paramount’s Valerie & Gabychat’ (Dendrobium atroviolaceum x Dendrobium rhodostictum) is shown above. It was exhibited by Paramount Orchids, and received a highly commended certificate (HCC/AOS).
Masdevallia wendlandiana ‘Thanks Chuck…’, exhibited by Alexey Tretyakov, is pictured on the right. It received a certificate of cultural merit (CCM/AOS).
Finally, the Show Trophy went to ‘Orchids from Afar’, exhibited by the Central Vancouver Island Orchid Society, pictured below.
Congratulations to all of these wonderful plants, the beautiful show table, and the exhibitors!
