Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
Blc. Mary Vaux Walcott
Blc. Carolina Orange D'or 'Krull-Smith' AM/AOS x Lc. Trick or Treat 'Orange Magic' AM/AOS)
The full-shaped orange flowers of Carolina Orange D’or (Blc. Carolina Golden D'Or x Blc. Malworth D'Or) are magnificent, and the 6-8 blooms per stem make this a spectacular show plant. Trick or Treat (L. Icarus x Lc. Chit Chat) produces amazing heads of starry orange flowers on tall upright inflorescences. This will be a particularly floriferous cross, with lots of orange flowers on robust plants that are easy to grow and bloom..
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description was written by Fred Clarke and details the expectation of this hybrid.
