Ira Butler Trophy 1998

The Gold Ira Butler Trophy 1998 for the Champion Australian Native Orchid Hybrid of the Year was awarded to Dendrobium Tie-Dye 'Royal Purple' HCC/AOC-NSW.

This plant, owned by Norm and Kay Mitchell, was the Champion Australian Native Orchid Hybrid of the Shows of both ANOS Far North Coast and Macleay Valley Orchid Society. The flowers were most striking with white sepals and petals evenly edged with bright purple and a generous purple labellum to match. They were of good size, substance and texture and the strong upright racemes displayed them to the best advantage. It is one of Neil Finch's Tropicool hybrids between Dendrobium Brinawa Charm and D. Candice and contains the following species in its breeding - D. kingianum 53.125%, D. bigibbum 12.5%, D. tetragonum 21.875% and D. speciosum 12.5%.

Of the 31 plants nominated this year, less than usual, 10 were from ANOS Group with NOSSA, 11 from State Affiliated societies, 5 from State Societies and 5 were Awarded plants. There were some very good plants with good photography which made the final decision difficult.
