Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Rubescent Magic (Tokyo Magic x Pot. Rubescence) blooms with good stems of 4-5 flowers from influenced by the Tokyo Magic parent and good shape with dark lip coloration from Rubescence from a compact plant. Carolina Splendor (Pot. Waikiki Splendor x Blc. Oconee) has large wine-red flowers, full ruffled dark burgundy lip, superb shape and form. These will bloom in rich reds to deep, dark oxblood red tones with 4 to 7 flowers held above the foliage. We expect these to be spectacular flowers, the plants size will be maxing out in the compact category, standing in at 12” tall and be robust plants growing. This is a modern ‘Standard Cattleya’ in a compact plant habit.
