P. Piton x P. x confusa raised by Ian Butterfield and registered in 1997.
This is not a named selection of the grex but I like the pale colour. The tepals are pale pink in some years and creamy white in others. I have been told that the colour variation reflects different temperatures experienced during dormancy.
Primrose yellow lip with orange markings. The flower is held on a reasonable stem, which is presumably what was intended when Piton was used as a parent (tall upright stems).
