Candy Sparks (Slc. Mem. Trudi Marsh x Slc. Angel's Fantasy) is a true mini-Catt. The plants are just 6” tall, the flower petals are red with brilliant yellow flaring, it is one of the best parents in breeding flared mini-Catts. Sunrise Fantasy (Sl. Pole-star x Slc. Fire Fantasy) bred by Peter T. Lin of Diamond Orchids has red-orange flowers with bright yellow flares, with upright stems holding high 3-4 flowers above the foliage. This breeding is all about developing red and yellow flared flowers that are held above the foliage in 3’s and 4’s on strong stems.  We have been breeding for years to get to this point, we are expecting this cross to deliver on the goal!

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.
