Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
(Blc. Love Sound 'Dogashima' AM/AOS x Pot. Little Toshie 'Gold Country' AM/AOS)
One of my favourite breeding plants is Love Sound (Blc. Bouton D'Or x L. briegeri). It imparts good flower form and colour, plant vigour, and compact growth. We are anticipating a very consistent outcome from this cross. Little Toshie 'Gold Country' (Sc. Beaufort x Blc. Toshie Aoki) flowers 2-3 times a year with superb, flat, bright-yellow flowers and dark red lips. The hybrid from this paring will produce compact plants with 4-5 flat yellow flowers, some having petals tipped in red, with excellent shape and red lip
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.
