Hybrid seedling plant in a 100mm pot.
Near flowering size.
Pot. Sylvia Wagner (Slc. Circle of Life x Pot. Elaine Taylor) has flowers of heavy substance, in a true red colour with superb shape, the parents used in its breeding are world class. The yet-to-be-registered (Paradise Rose x Rubescence) has an equally impressive breeding line, the parents of Pot. Paradise is (Slc. Pink Doll x Blc. Toshie Aoki) and Pot. Rubescence (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Seagulls Apricot). The list of ancestors behind this new hybrid reads like a who’s who list of compact solid red breeding. What else needs to be said?.
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description was written by Fred Clarke and details the expectation of this hybrid.
