Regular price $12.50

Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.

The full-shaped orange flowers of Carolina Orange D’or (Blc. Carolina Golden D'Or x Blc. Malworth D'Or) are magnificent, the cultivar ‘Krull-Smith’ has the best shape and lip of the grex, it produces 6-8 blooms per stem make this a spectacular show plant.  I have admired this plant for years, and we have used it to make many orange and yellow hybrids. We have little experience using Shinfong Little Sun (Lc. Golden Girl x Pot. Taida Love Star) as a parent. Its flowers come in clusters of 5-7 in solid orange on plants about 10” tall.  The idea here is to breed plants standing at 10” tall, with a cluster of shapely flowers in solid orange

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.
