Regular price $13.50

Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.

Lc. Florence Lin (Jalapa)

The first time we made Florence Lin it was with a 2n leopoldii that blooms with up to 52 flowers on a single inflorescence.  The offspring were very floriferous, carrying 15-19 flowers per stem, and received several AOS awards.  The second time we made it, we used the two parents listed here, and what a difference that made in flower colour, size and shape!  Not surprisingly, they sold out quickly.  Here we have re-used those same parents to re-make the re-make.  The flowers will be deep red with even darker burgundy spots and have excellent shape. This is a very desirable primary hybrid, a real must-have!

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.
