Ira Butler Trophy 2000

The Gold Ira Butler Trophy 2000 for the Champion Australian Native Orchid Hybrid of the Year was awarded to Dendrobium Jesmond Glitter x Den. Zip.

This splendid orchid was Champion Australian Native Orchid Hybrid at the Far North Coast ANOS Group show. It was a very floriferous plant with up to twelve beautifully presented flowers to an inflorescence. The Show Marshall described the flowers as having pink mottled edges on a cream background, with a darker mottled labellum to match the rest of the flower.

The plant is owned by Kay and Norm Mitchell of Bellingen and was bred by John Purvis. It comprised 46.875% Dendrobium kingianum, 21.875% D. speciosum, 18.75% D. tetragonum, and 12.5% D. fleckeri.

Of the 34 nominations this year, 9 were from ANOS groups. 1 from NOSSA, 18 from State or OSCOV Affiliated societies, 5 from State Societies, and 1 from Ken Russell's Dungong Show. Nominated plants had also received a total of 9 quality awards during the year and three Awards of Distinction. The overwhelming majority of entries were dendrobiums and there were only two terrestrials.
