Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
T ‘Blue Sky’ is still the standard of quality for the coeruela form of this species. Mareeba Tiger (C. tigrina x C. schilleriana) was re-made in the coeruela form and they have been spectacular. This is next level breeding in some of the hottest properties, coerulea flowers with blue spots! This is the first offering in Australia. Expect 5-9 flowers on good stems, blooming in the heat of summer! Very collectable.
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. The picture shows the parents of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
