(Sc. Beaufort 'Big Circle' x Slc. Mem. Trudi Marsh 'Sun Flare’)

Beaufort (S. coccinea x C. luteola) is one the most recognizable names in mini-Catt breeding. It has been used successfully in hundreds of hybrids and is dominant for shape and small plant stature. Mem. Trudi Marsh (Slc. Tangerine Jewel x Slc. Cosmic Delite) is a recent introduction to mini-Catt breeding and is responsible for most candy stripe patterning. It’s a vigorous grower and flowers twice a year. We are excited about this cross! The unmistakable charm imparted by each parent will be evident, the plants will stand 4-5” tall, all with well-rounded flowers in red to orange and many will have red veined flares on the petals.

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.
