Moorcroft Nelly Roberts | Made to Order



Nelly’s world-class orchid illustrations were first recognised by the charity with an RHS Gold medal in 1900 and the Silver Veitch Memorial Medal on her retirement in 1953. Nelly’s name was immortalised in two orchids of distinction themselves, Odontoglossum Opheron gx 'Nelly Roberts' and Cattleya Nellie Roberts gx. Designer Nicola Slaney frames a pale orchid against a black backdrop at the base of the vase as it circles underneath the flaming pinks of Odontoglossum Opheron gx 'Nelly Roberts', on a white ground, in a fitting tribute to a lady who faithfully applied her watercolour brush through myriad colours with timeless beauty.
