Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
The walkeriana f. semi-alba 'Tokyo #1' is one of the time-honored semi-alba walkeriana, its floral qualities are rarely challenged with pure white flowers and a flat magenta lip. Dubiosa (C. trianae x C. loddigesii) it is the parent of the famous Lc. Puppy Love (C. Dubiosa x L. anceps) It is a favorite breeder of mine as it produces impressive heads of 7-9 flowers that are long lived, up to 6-7 weeks. With just 3 species represented: walkeriana, loddigesii and trianae we are envisioning 3-5 pink flowers, with wide full-shaped petals and darker magenta lips, these will be reliable growers and bloomers in late Winter. These are small and expensive!
