Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Candy Flare (Pot. Golden Circle x Slc. Mem. Trudi Marsh) has a very rounded flower shape with orange-red color and darker veins on the petals, its very exotic looking producing flowers twice a year. The flowers of Denis Roessiger (Pot. Golden Circle x Slc. Angel Eyes) are also very round, red and veined in darker red a beautifully shaped lip with bright yellow throat and it blooms twice a year. This is line breeding, with Golden Circle on both site of the cross we are expecting very round full flower shapes, orange to red colors and almost all will have darker red veins on the petals. About 25% will have a central yellow splash of color in the petals with red veins on top…a term we are calling ’Candy Splashed’. Twice a year flowering too.
