Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
The outstanding flower shape and colour of this Gene Crocker (Pot. Newberry Promise x Pot. Newberry Delight) caught out attention, it is a compact grower just 8” tall. Fantasy Circle (Pot. Golden Circle x Slc. Angel's Fantasy) has a ridiculously well-formed flower with fantastic red and yellow flaring on the petals, plus the flowers are 4” across, huge! The expectation is for large dark red flowers, many with yellow flaring on the wide petals, plants will be about 8” tall... We are anxiously waiting to see these bloom!
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. The picture shows the parents of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
