Ira Butler Trophy 2004

The Gold Ira Butler Trophy 2004 for the Champion Australian Native Orchid Hybrid of the Year was awarded to Sarcochilus Heidi 'Albert Brown'.

This lovely orchid is owned by Down Under Native Orchids. It was Champion Australian Native Hybrid at the ANOS Sydney Group Sarcanthinae Show in October. The plant had three inflorescences averaging sixteen flowers each. The flat, well filled in flowers were mid pink in colour with a red centre, and well displayed.

The breeder of this particular plant is, unfortunately, unknown. Sarco Heidi is Sarco. Fitzhart x Sarco. hartmannii and the grex was registered by David Banks in 1983.

Of the 33 nominations, 20 were from State or AOC or OSCOV affiliated Societies, 8 were from ANOS Groups, 1 from NOSSA, 1 from the Native Orchid Society of Toowoomba and three were eligible by reason of having received quality awards.
