Hybrid seedling plant in a 100mm pot.
Spring Fires (Lc. Fires of Spring x Lc. Fire Island) has strong upright stems carrying 5-9 red/orange flowers with darker red lips. It is proving to be an excellent parent, with dominance for colour, strong stems and bloom period. Telling Lies (Pot. Rubescence x Pot. Love Passion) produces beautiful orange flowers suffused red and covered with a sparkling diamond dust texture, the flowers have a good shape and are held on strong inflorescences. Expect shapely flowers ranging in colours from red to orange overlayed in red, lips dark red, sturdy stems will do a good job holding 4-5 flowers.
