Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Based on the successes of Blc. Kaboom resulted is the inspiration for this cross. Schroder’s Love (C. schroderae x Love Sound) has great flower form and size, its strong stems hold 4-5 flowers just above the foliage. Over the years Bouton D’or (C. Wolteriana x Blc. Buttercup) has sired 100‘s of successful hybrids with its most successful being Love Sound (Bouton D’or x briegeri) the parent of Schroder’s Love. This ‘line breeding’ will accentuate the flowers form by continuing to flatten and round out the petal shape, keep flower counts at 5-6 blooms per stem, and most importantly develop the desirable orange flower color and orange lips, so nice....
