Flowers medium to large, 4 inches high and 4 inches wide. Standards arching cupped; very broadly obovate; Violet Purple shading to copper at claw, Maroon veined. Falls flaring; broadly wedge shaped; Cotinga Purple, haft pale light yellowish at the extreme base, with Maroon veining; beard yellow. Style branches yellow, center and crests Pale Amparo Purple. General effect of flower, in masa rich dark red of one tone, but a bicolor, due to the heavy velvety falls. This variety flowered first in 1923.
