Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
We are always looking for opportunities to make breakthrough crosses, and trying a few crosses outside the normal boundaries sometimes delivers good results. Over the years, we have admired the individual qualities of both of these parents as well as the excellent progeny that both have produced. The flowers of Carolina Orange D'or (Blc. Carolina Golden D'Or x Blc. Malworth D'Or) are magnificent, with excellent orange color, full shape and 6-8 blooms per stem, making a spectacular show. Love Passion (Pot. William Farrell x Lc. Trick or Treat) is an excellent grower; plants produce 9-11 bright orange flowers well above the foliage. This will produce shapely orange flowers, on sturdy stems of 7-9. This cross will produce outstanding show stopping, display plants.
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
