Description
Plant :
Leaves :
Inflorescence :
Flower : Depending on the various colour-intensities of the parents that were used, the flowers of Phrag. Sedenii are equally different in colour. They vary from almost pure white, with a very light pink blush to a very dark purple.

Flowering season :

Comments : This is a quite variable hybrid when it comes to the colour of the flowers. The colours can be so different that they at first were given different names. For example, the plants which showed a very light coloured flower were named Phrag. Sedenii (var.) Candidulum and the plants which had a very dark coloured flower were called Phrag. Sedenii (var.) Porphyreum or even Phrag. Porphyreum. Of course all these plants are one and the same, very various, hybrid. So the names mentioned earlier are just synonyms for Phrag. Sedenii.
