Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Bouton D'Or (C. Wolteriana x Blc. Buttercup) is a well-respected parent, the flowers have good shape and color, the plants are robust growers and reliable bloomers. Guess What (Blc. Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat) is a favorite breeder of mine. It's dominant for vibrant orange-yellow flower on strong stems carrying clusters of 8-9 blooms. This is one of those “you have to make it” crosses, and we expect these to have 5-9 well-held flowers in bright orange.
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
