Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
The impressive 6-9 week flower longevity of Dubiosa (C. trianae x C. loddigesii) passes on to it progeny. The cultivar ‘Scully’ carries 5-8 flowers that are well displayed, they are almost white but a hint of lavender is evident in the lip. The well-rounded flowers of Sydney J (Lc. Mini Purple x Lc. Mem. Robert Strait) are almost perfectly flat, the flowers are deep purple and the big full lip is even darker purple. These will be of excellent shape in purple with darker purple lips, we are expecting 4-5 well supported flowers with amazing flower longevity.
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
