This Cymbidium species is
closely related to Cymbidium eburneum but different in that the
flowers do not open fully being a little more delicate and not quite the
same size, they are none the less attractive. Sepals and petals are pure
white; the lip is also pure white with yellow suffusion with few pale
red/purple spots near the throat, the column is also white.
A fragrance of almonds is evident when in flower.
Originally classified by Blume
and given the name Cyperorchis said to be infrequently seen,
epiphytic, lithophytic or terrestrial without pseudobulbs from the
Himalayas, South-east Asia, Malaya and China.
