Oncidium orchids are the best-known members of the oncidium alliance. This intergeneric hybrid is Gombrassiltonia Hilo Ablaze 'Hilo Gold'. It was formerly known under the intergeneric name Aliceara and is a cross between Gomesia, Brassia, and Miltonia. The label on this plant may have been somewhat misspelled (Hiko Ablaze 'Hlllo Gold') but it is a beautiful flower. The oncidium alliance is another group which usually doesn't have much to recommend itself as an attractive plant when not in bloom, but this particular cross is not an overtly ugly plant and those flowers are so spectacular that I'll be begging for a division of this plant, which one of my friends purchased) when it gets big enough to divide.


Think this orchid has beautiful color and markings. Gombrassiltonia Hilo Ablaze 'Hilo Gold' HCC/AOS, formerly known under the intergeneric name Aliceara, is a cross between Gomesia, Brassia, and Miltonia. This plant has been a reliable bloomer that lasts a long time in bloom with individual flower size of about 3.5 inches. Four bloom spikes this time.
