Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.

I can’t believe I did not make this cross sooner.  Both parents have outstanding flower quality and excellent breeders.  Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) is one of my most reliable breeding plants.  I am asked what the meaning of ‘OPRL’ its  Orange Petals Red Lip is.  I use it to impart size, shape, and colour; it also flowers two or even three times a year. Virginia Dickey (Slc. Pink Doll x Sl. Pole-Star) has plants just 5” tall, they bloom 2 and sometimes 3 times a year, the upright stems hold 3-4  flowers of excellent shape above the foliage and it’s a great breeding parent.  What a great combination, first off flowers will have wide petals and fantastic overall shape, their colour will range from red to orange-red, and the lips will be full shaped and red. The plants will be 6” tall and the short but sturdy inflorescences will display 3 well-arranged flowers. 

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.
