Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Hawaiian Prominence (Blc. Hisako Akatsuka x Slc. Wendy's Redstone) has flowers with deep velvety ruby purple, a ruby purple lip and bright yellow throat, the 4.5” flowers are produced on plants just 10” tall. Rubescence (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Seagulls Apricot) is a legendary breeding plant, and its dominant traits of flower shape, color, and plant habit have revolutionized modern mini and compact Cattleya breeding. The ancestry in this cross will lead to one outcome: flat, beautifully shaped, deep red/purple flowers with darker red lips and a contrasting yellow throat..
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parents of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
