Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Beaufort (Soph. coccinea x C. luteola) has been a highly successful parent for breeding mini and compact sized Cattleyas. In this cross its influence on the offspring will be to reduce plants size, reinforce the twice a year blooming habit, and assure well rounded flower shapes. Denis Roessiger (Pot. Golden Circle x Slc. Angel Eyes) are very round, red flowers, the lip has a beautiful shape. As a bonus, it also blooms twice a year. You can almost guarantee flowers with well-rounded shape, in colors from red to an orange/ yellow some will have flares! Plants will grow well and flower twice a year.
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
