Often confused with Den. farmerii, the lip on this species is more ovate in form with its basal hairs resembling eyelashes, therefore the name palpebra which means eyelid !  With a growth habit and flowers that are similar to Den. farmerii, this species flowers from late spring to summer on pendulous inflorescences carrying up to 15 fragrant flowers on growths that are even more compact than Den. farmerii.  A very weather tolerant species, we have grown it in our unheated greenhouse at temperatures down to 45F.  It needs a drier fall/winter for several weeks, like many of this type, to produce its best spring flowering.  And when not in flower, it has beautiful canes and glossy leaves.  Highly Recommended !      

PLEASE NOTE: Since this is a Seedling Population (not a Mericlone which produces exact duplicates), the picture is for illustration purposes only. No two plants will be the same from this cross, and they will flower in a range of possibilities coming from the two parents.
