Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Laszlo's Spark (Slc. Mem. Trudi Marsh x Pot. Sunrise Fantasy) has an excellent shape and bright yellow flares in the centre of the petals framed by pronounced red veins. ‘Mini Flare’ first flowered in the plug tray and now blooms twice a year once in spring and again in the fall. One of my favourite breeding plants is Love Sound, it has proven itself over and over as a valuable breeder and is dominant for its yellow flower colour, form, stem, and plant habit. Expect yellow and red flower colours, flares of red and yellow, and rounded shape. Many of these will flower early and continue to improve flower count and presentations as the plants mature.
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. The picture shows the parents of this cross. The above description was written by Fred Clarke and details the expectation of this hybrid.
