Hybrid seedling plant in a 100mm pot.
Near flowering size.
Virginia Dickey (Slc. Pink Doll x Sl. Pole-Star) is a darling mini-Catt. Plants flower twice a year in 3” pots and have sturdy stems holding 2-3 bright red flowers of superior form. Beaufort (Soph. coccinea x C. luteola) has been a highly successful parent for breeding mini and compact-sized Cattleyas. In this cross, its influence will reduce plant size and assure well-rounded flower shapes. Excellent shapely flowers on neat, compact plants, flower colours will range from yellow to red, these will be super cute. An outstanding mini-Catt hybrid.
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.
