Wilsonara (Wils.) Opalescent 'On The Edge' is a true marvel among intergeneric hybrids in the oncidium alliance. With its dazzling beauty, pronounced spikes with an abundance of unique white flowers with sporadic spotting, and specifically named for its soft purple coloration around the edges, this orchid will effortlessly grace any space with an aura of elegance and sophistication when in full bloom.

Delicate petals, gracefully shaped, create a breathtaking display of vibrant hues, from white to soft pastels, deep purples and bright yellow.

The unique charm of the Wilsonara Opalescent 'On The Edge' lies in its exquisite lip, delicately fringed with intricate patterns and bold splashes of contrasting colors. The soft, purple edging is the focal point of this stunning flower, drawing the eye in with its mesmerizing allure.

    Posted by Henry Macadamia on Sep 1st 2023

    One of the several plants I've purchased from Akatsuka; is an undeniably great-looking plant, healthy, and robust. Can't wait to see its first bloom. Received in pretty good size.
