Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Rubescent Magic (Tokyo Magic x Pot. Rubescence) produced many nice offspring, they all had good stems with 4-5 flowers imparted from the Tokyo Magic and the good shape and lip from the Rubescence. The color dominance phenomenon of Paradise Rose (Slc. Pink Doll x Blc. Toshie Aoki) has be described earlier and we expect Paradise Rose to pass much of the intense crimson-red-purple flower color to its progeny. The expectation for this cross is well shaped flat flowers, with 3-5 per stem, color intense red with darker crimson red ruffled lips. These should be outstanding.
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
