Cattleya Orchid Hybrid SVO10447 (Lc. Rosie's Surprise 'Crestview' x Slc. Purple Doll 'Midnight Velvet' AM/AOS)

Regular price $12.50

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.

Rosie’s Surprise (Lc. Irene Finney x C. walkeriana) is an impressive flat, soft pink flower with wide petals and a beautifully contrasting lip in white, yellow, and purple.  Purple Doll (Slc. Pink Doll x Lc. Mini Purple) 'Midnight Velvet' has an intense magenta-purple colour. It blooms 3-4 times a year with flowers of excellent shape on a small plant standing just 5” tall.   This is one of those crosses I believe will be really good.  We are predicting large, flat flowers of well-rounded form in deep rich purple colours on plants 7” tall. 

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.
