Will the Real Gongora unicolor Please Stand Up?!

Gongora unicolor. Another really cool Gongora blooming in the greenhouse. This one was just ID'd by Rudolf Jenny as Gongora unicolor. It came in as Gongora quinquinervis alba and clearly is not. This complicates things a little since it is fairly different in lip structure from the other Gongora blooming that was supposedly Gongora unicolor. Either way, what a beauty! Who needs white (alba) anyhow when you can have a wonderful sunset peach?
