Named for the Duke of Devonshire, this indian species has 10-12 inch long leaves that are broad and blade like. The flowers emerge in the spring after a slightly dry rest with no feed in winter. The scapes are pendulous with 15 to 25 flowers that are nearly 2 inches in size. The flower color has a green base overlaid with olive and a bit of burgundy spotting and striping. The lip is white dark wine colored spots on either side of the column. Fragrant like eucalyptus.
