Sunset Valley Orchids 2018 Cattleya List

 

Compact Catts

Compact growing Cattleyas have gained considerable interest with hobbyist for some important reasons. 

  • Plants will stay under 12” tall and bloom in 4”- 5” pots.
  • They are space savings so with more plants per sq. ft. makes for more flowers per sq. ft.
  • Flowers are appealing, with large size and wide range of colors.
  • New hybrids are bred to carry the flowers well, on strong stems that don't require staking.
  • They grow well under a wide range of cultural conditions. 

The crosses listed represent the most modern breeding available, with many outstanding hybrids having great potential.  I have spent hours describing the potential of the offspring, so read on!

SVO 5607      
L. NEW HYBRID (L. sanguiloba 'SVO Hot Lips' x L. tenebrosa 'None Darker')

Laelia sanguiloba has an orange flower with red side lobes on the lip, and holds 11-15 flowers on an upright stem.  L. tenebrosa 'None Darker' has deeply colored petals and sepals - some of the darkest red-bronze colors I have seen in this species. This cross is a lot like L. Zip (milleri x tenebrosa), but sanguiloba has more flowers per stem and a longer inflorescence than milleri.  Flowers will be an intense red-orange with dark purple-red lips, a very attractive color combination, and the stems will carry 7-9 starry flowers.  Limited supply.  This is a Picture of the first to bloom.

Pot. Lebenkreis (Pot. Rubescence 'SVO' AM/AOS x Slc. Circle of Life 'Fordyce Herald Angel' AM/AOS)

Both parents are good breeders, and earlier results of this style of breeding have validated this reputation.  The flowers are a deep red with excellent form and size; some flowers will measure more than 5” across!  Plants stay under 10” tall and flower twice a year.  This is a high quality cross - take a look at these pictures of the first blooming plants

Eplc. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Dennis Olivas 'Best' x Epc. Kyoguchi 'M. Sauno' mutation)

I have been surprised to see how well Kyoguchi (Enc. incumbens x C. aurantiaca) breeds as a parent.  Here, we are pairing it with the yellow, red-flared Dennis Olivas (Lc. Trick or Treat x C. Penny Kuroda), with the intent of producing fragrant yellow to orange flowers with red flares on branching stems.  The plants are very vigorous and will produce the first flowers in 3” pots and mature in 4” pots; about half will have red flares. This is a new style of breeding and holds considerable promise - very cool!

L. NEW HYBRID (L. angereri 'Peter's Red' x L. harpophylla 'Orange Flash')

I have always liked the Brazilian Laelias.  Primary hybrids (crosses between two species) like this grex exhibit a phenomenon call "hybrid vigor," in which the offspring grow better and flower more freely compared to either species.  L. angereri is one of my favorites, and this grex blooms with 20 + well-supported red-orange flowers.  L. harpophylla has bright orange flowers, usually 4-7 per stem, and 'Orange Flash' is a selection from a sibling cross of the acclaimed L. harpophylla 'Mayan Fantasy' AM/AOS.  Here we are looking for bright orange-red stars on good stems held by compact plants that bloom in spring.  This grex will have all the charm of the species but be easier to grow.  Here you have a unique opportunity to evaluate the effect of capsule vs. pollen parent, as the reciprocal cross is also available; see SVO 6761.

Slc. NEW HYBRID (Slc.  Anduril 'Krull's Scarlet' AM/AOS x Slc.Hsiang-Yu Red Pearl 'Red Dragonfly' AM/AOS)

The dark red flowers of Anduril (Lc. Trick or Treat x Slc. Jewel Box) are produced on vigorous-growing plants that bloom in March.  The Hsiang-Yu Red Pearl (Slc. Kagaribi Dawn x Lc. Rojo) has vibrant dark red flowers well displayed in clusters of 7-9 above the foliage, also in March. Ok, so I have a thing for clusters of dark red flowers on great stems in March.  They sure are show stoppers!

L. NEW HYBRID (L. Seagulls 'SVO' x L. Brazilian Tangerine 'SVO')

This is the next step in our advanced rupicolous Laelia breeding.  We have worked with many primary hybrids over the years, and here we have chosen two of the best to kick off the next generation.  Brazilian Tangerine (Seagulls Tangerine 'SVO' AM/AOS x L. milleri 'Dr. Koopowitz Red' HCC/AOS) and Seagull (L. briegeri 'Star of Brazil' AM/AOS x L. milleri 'Dr. Koopowitz Red' HCC/AOS) are outstanding parents, and the results of this cross should be exceptional.  Flower color will range from orange to red.  These will have all the charm and charisma of the rupicolous Laelia species and, importantly, be as easy to grow as any hybrid Cattleya.  This is a major improvement!  These plants are blooming size already, less than 2 years from flask!!!  First to bloom 19 months from flask Picture

Dialc. NEW HYBRID [(Dialc. Silver Star x Lc. Angel Heart) 'SVO' x L. Finckeniana 'Kennedys' 4N]

For years I have been intrigued by pink flowers with yellow lips.  This cross brings in the added element of flaring on the petals with the use of (Silver Star x Angel Heart), a lovely full-shaped pink flower with darker pink flares and quite a bit of yellow in the lip. Finckeniana, with its long arching stems of 8-10 pink flowers and yellow lips, will add flower count and assure the pink coloration and lip color.  About half will have pink flaring on the petals.

SVO 6517      
L. NEW HYBRID (L. Finckeniana 'Disciplinata Splash' x L. anceps 'Disciplinata' HCC/AOS)

The parents of this grex of Finckeniana are (L. anceps 'Disciplinata' HCC/AOS x L. albida 'SVO' HCC/AOS), and this cultivar produces arching stems of 5-9 flowers in a medium purple with darker purple flecks on the petals. Crossing it back to 'Disciplinata' will double up on the petal flecking and increase flower size.  This is a very interesting and new Laelia breeding line with lots of potential for that 'wow factor!'  These are excellent outdoor growers in frost free areas.  Very Limited

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Golden Circle 'OPRL' AM/AOS x Pot. Little Toshie 'Gold Country' AM/AOS)

Golden Circle has golden orange petals and sepals with a contrasting red lip.  The blooms are very full-shaped and have a beautiful lip, and the plants are 8” tall and flowers 2-3 times a year.  Little Toshie 'Gold Country' is a superb grower, with excellent flower quality and color, and is a frequent bloomer producing flowers 2-4 times a year.  We are expecting well-above-average flower shape with large full lips.  Bloom color should be an intense golden yellow with some in orange sunset colors, too.  Plants will be 6-8” tall, and when they mature, you will see blooms in the spring and again in midsummer, with some flowering again in the fall. The first one just flowered with excellent results Pic

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Loud Nine 'SVO Best' x Slc. Circle of Life 'Fordyce Herald Angel' AM/AOS)

I was on “Cloud Nine” when the first plant (Pot. Rubescence x Sl. Orpetii) bloomed.  It was the roundest, deepest red mini-Cattleya I could have imagined.  With some light editing and a little play on words, Pot. Loud Nine was registered.  Little introduction is needed for Circle of Life, and 'Fordyce Herald Angel' is one of the best: particularly large, flat flowers of excellent shape, with surprisingly wide petals and rich red color.  These plants are exhibiting excellent vigor, and some have flowered already, less than two years from flask!  Dark red/burgundy flowers of superior shape and darker red lips!  I almost forgot to mention that these will flower twice a year when mature. This grex has huge potential to set a new standard for color and shape of mini-catts.

SVO 6554      
Pot. Mark's Valentine (Slc. Circle of Life 'Fordyce Herald Angel ' AM/AOS x Pot. Little Toshie 'Gold Country' AM/AOS)

This is a good cross with a reliable twice-a-year blooming habit.  The flowers have a very attractive shape and come in shades of red with darker red lips.  Little Toshie 'Gold Country' (Sc. Beaufort x Blc. Toshie Aoki) is the best cultivar of this delightful grex.  It flowers 2-3 times a year with superb, flat, bright yellow flowers and dark red lips.  Circle of Life (Lc. Culminant x Soph. coccinea) needs little introduction, and the cultivar 'Fordyce Herald Angel' is one of the best.  Hybrids made in this style of breeding produce excellent progeny, and every plant produces good flowers.  Great-looking plants with lots of vigor - these are really nice!  Here is a Picture of a first bloom.

Pot. Little Circle (Pot. Little Toshie 'Gold Country' AM/AOS x Pot. Golden Circle 'OPRL'

Golden Little Toshie 'Gold Country' (Sc. Beaufort x Blc. Toshie Aoki) is the best cultivar of this delightful grex.  It flowers 2-3 times a year with superb, flat, bright yellow flowers and dark red lips.  Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) is one of my most reliable breeding plants.  The cultivar name 'OPRL' stands for Orange Petals Red Lip.  'OPRL' imparts size, shape, color and the habit of flowering two or three times a year.  This cross has amazing potential!  Plants are expected to produce flowers with superior form in colors ranging from yellow to orange.  All will have contrasting red lips, and they will flower twice a year

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Blc. Guess What 'SVO' AM/AOS x Pot. Mem. Jim Nickou 'James' HCC/AOS)

The vibrant orange-yellow flower color of Guess What (Blc. Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat) and its cluster of 8-9 flowers make this cross one of my favorite March bloomers.  The Mem. Jim Nickou (Blc. Xanthette x Sc. Beaufort) has bright yellow flowers with just a bit of red on the lip.  Excellent shape and twice-a-year flowering make this a desirable parent.  The 5-7 golden yellow flowers, each with a touch of red on the lip, will be presented well on sturdy stems.

SVO 6693      
Pot. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Spring Fires 'Lynette #1' x Pot. Star Fire 'Rubens')

Spring Fires (Lc. Fires of Spring x Lc. Fire Island) has strong upright stems carrying 5-9 red flowers with darker red lips.  It is proving to be an excellent parent, with dominance for color, strong stems and bloom period. The flowers of Star Fire (Lc. Trick or Treat x Rubescence) are deep red and produced 5-7 on a strong stem.  This promising grex is the continuation in a series of steps aimed at developing the perfect head of intensely-colored, deep red flowers, held high on sturdy stems.

SVO 6704
Pot. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Spring Fires 'Lenette #1' x Pot. Rubescent Fires 'Fire Bomb')

Spring Fires (Lc. Fires of Spring x Lc. Fire Island) has strong upright stems carrying 5-9 red flowers with darker red lips.  It is proving to be an excellent parent, with dominance for color, strong stems and bloom period.  The flowers of Rubescent Fires (Lc. Spring Fires x Pot. Rubescence) are a vivid deep red and full-shaped, held 5-6 on a strong stem.  This breeding line continues a series of steps aimed at the development of plants that will produce strong stems holding 5-7 well-formed deep red flowers, above the foliage.

SVO 6708      
Pot. NEW HYBRID (Blc. Izumi Charm 'SVO' AM/AOS x Slc. Fire Fantasy 'Royalty')

It's fun to try a new combination in breeding.  Izumi Charm (Blc. Love Sound x Lc. Melody Fair) is a larger plant, standing 14” tall.  It has a compact growth habit with strong stems carrying 5 to 7 well-shaped light yellow flowers with bright crimson red lips.  Here, those qualities are added to the well-known tendencies of Slc. Fire Fantasy to produce yellow flowers and vibrant red flared petal tips.  This combination should give us larger yellow flowers with red petal tips and a bright crimson lip, all well-displayed on strong stems.  I am very interested in seeing the results of this cross. The first to bloom is super nice!  Picture

SVO 6709      
Slc. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Donna Pasanen 'SVO' x Slc. Tropical Star 'Peter's')

How about a near-mini-catt with stems of flared flowers?   This cross is about reducing plant size while maintaining the charm and flower count of its larger relatives.  Donna Pasanen (Lc. Trick or Treat x Slc. Dream Cloud) has great color with red flares in nice clusters of 5-6 blooms.  Tropical Star (Lc. Tropical Song x Sl. Pole-Star) is a mini-catt with very attractive flared flowers.  This grex was developed by Peter T. Lin of Diamond Orchids and is really quite charming.  When breeding for longer stems of 5-7 flowers, plants tend to be taller, but in this case the plants should max out at 8-10” tall.  The 5-7 flowers will be flared in sunset colors with red lips and held well on nice stems.
3” pots $14

SVO 6738
Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Lee's Ruby 'SVO' x Lc. Spring Fires 'Lenette #3')

There are several fantastic features of Lee's Ruby (C. Chocolate Drop x Pot. Martha Clarke): rounded flower shape, solid red color and 7-9 waxy flowers on a stem. Spring Fires (Lc. Fires of Spring x Lc. Fire Island) has strong upright inflorescences carrying 5-9 red blooms with darker red lips.  It is proving to be an excellent parent, with dominance for color, sturdy stems and bloom period.  The expectation here is upright inflorescences carrying 5-7 deep red flowers well above the foliage.  Limited

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Blc. Kaboom 'SVO' x Slc. Fire Fantasy 'Royalty')

The 5-7 flowers produced by Kaboom (Blc. Schroder's Love x Blc. Guess What) are a sparkling bright yellow with yellow lips and orange in the throat.  Fire Fantasyis well known for its ability to breed flowers with flares. In this type of breeding, the flowers often express lip color as flares on the petals.  There is a good opportunity here for yellow flowers with orange flares - very cool!  I am very interested in seeing the results from this cross. Here is a Picture of the first one to bloom was spot on!

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Young-Min Orange 'Gold Satisfaction' AM/AOS' x Lc. Trick or Treat 'Orange Magic' AM/AOS)

Young-Min Orange (Pot. Viola Nugget x Lc. Trick or Treat) has waxy, intense orange flowers in a nice cluster on a compact plant.  Breeding it back to Trick or Treat (L. Icarus x Lc. Chit Chat), which blooms with large heads of 15+ starry orange flowers, will make for big clusters of bright orange blooms.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Blc. Kaboom 'SVO' x Pot. Golden Circle 'OPRL')

Kaboom (Blc. Schroder's Love x Blc. Guess What) produces 5-7 sparkling bright yellow flowers with yellow lips and orange in the throat.Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) is one of my most reliable breeding plants.  I am often asked what is meant by 'OPRL' - Orange Petals Red Lip.  This parent imparts good flower size, shape and color; it also blooms two or three times a year.  Here we are looking for well-formed golden-orange flowers with red lips and improved flower count.

SVO 6751      
Pot. NEW HYBRID (Blc. Kaboom 'SVO'x Slc. Angel's Fantasy 'Solar Flair' FCC/AOS)

The 5-7 flowers produced by Kaboom (Blc. Schroder's Love x Blc. Guess What) are a sparkling bright yellow with yellow lips and orange in the throat. Angel's Fantasy is particularly nice.  The flowers are just spectacular, and the FCC/AOS says a lot about the flower quality.  This plant is also a good grower and flowers twice a year.  There is a good opportunity here for yellow flowers with orange and red flares  - very, VERY cool. I can't wait for these to start flowering!

Fire Fantasy (Lc. Hawaiian Fantasy x Soph. coccinea) is well known for its ability to breed flared flowers.  Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) is one of my most reliable breeding plants.  'OPRL' stands for Orange Petals Red Lip, and I use this plant to impart good flower size, shape and color.  This plant also flowers two or three times a year.  These will have yellow-orange flowers with red flares.

L. Coronet (L. cinnabarina 'SVO Giant' x L. harpophylla 'Orange Flash')

I've always liked Brazilian laelias.  Hybrids between two species (primary hybrids) like this cross exhibit a phenomenon call "hybrid vigor," in which the offspring grow better and flower more freely than either species. This hybrid will have all the charm of the species but be easier to grow.  Here we are remaking an old timer: Coronet was registered in 1902! The cinnabarina flowers with strong stems holding 10 large cinnabar-orange star-shaped flowers.  L. harpophylla has bright orange flowers, usually 4-7 per stem and 'Orange Flash' is a selection from a sibling cross of the acclaimed L. harpophylla 'Mayan Fantasy' AM/AOS.  These should produce lots of bright orange stars well above the foliage.

L. NEW HYBRID (L. harpophylla 'Orange Flash' x L. angereri 'Peter's Red')

Brazilian laelias have long been among my favorite orchids.  Primary hybrids (crosses between two species) like this new grex exhibit a phenomenon call "hybrid vigor," in which the offspring grow better and flower more freely compared to either species.  L. harpophylla has bright orange flowers, usually 4-7 per stem, and 'Orange Flash' is a selection from a sibling cross of the acclaimed L. harpophylla 'Mayan Fantasy' AM/AOS.  L. angereri is one of my favorites, and this grex blooms with 20 + well-supported red-orange flowers.  This species is not common in cultivation and rare as a parent in breeding.  Here we are looking for bright orange-red stars on good stems produced by compact plants that bloom in spring.  This grex will have all the charm of the species but be easier to grow.  Here you have a unique opportunity to evaluate the effect of capsule vs. pollen parent, as the reciprocal cross is also available; see SVO 6345.

L. NEW HYBRID (L. angereri 'Peter's Red' x L. milleri 'Harry Polk' AM/AOS)

L. angereri is one of my favorites, blooming with 20 + red-orange flowers, This L. milleri produces 11-13  large orange-red flowers per inflorescence, a higher-than-average flower count for this species. These will flower with strong stems carrying 12-15 bright red-orange starry Brazilian jewels.  Compact plants should flower in 3” pots.Hybrids between two species (primary hybrids) like this grex often exhibit a phenomenon called "hybrid vigor," in which the offspring are easier to grow and flower compared to either species.

Slc. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Circle of Fire 'SVO' x Lc. Spring Fires 'Lenette #3')

Circle of Fire (Lc. Spring Fires x Slc. Circle of Life)blooms with 3-4 well-supported deep red flowers with full-shaped petals and good form.  The influence of Slc. Circle of Life (Lc. Culminant x Soph. coccinea) is evident.  Crossing it back to its parent, Spring Fires (Lc. Fires of Spring x Lc. Fire Island), should reinforce the strong upright stems that carry 5-9 red flowers with darker red lips.  This process is known as "line breeding."  The Spring Fires qualities should be emphasized, while the Circle of Life genes in Circle of Fire will impart fuller-shaped petals and overall form.  This is an important cross, with all the potential for 5-6 full-shaped red flowers on good stems.

Blc. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Tokyo Magic '6-1' AM/AOS x Blc. Laughing Boy 'SVO Flame' AM/AOS)

Over the years Tokyo Magic (Lc. Irene Finney x L. briegeri) has been responsible for 62 registered hybrids resulting in 56 AOS award - quite a record!  This important parent  breeds good flower shape, red lips, sturdy stems and a compact growth habit. Laughing Boy (Blc. Love Sound x Lc. Dennis Olivas) has an impressive head of 13-15 bright yellow flowers with dark red flares. Expect many bright yellow flowers with red flares and straight, upright stems on a compact plant.

Slc. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Tokyo Magic '6-1' AM/AOS x Slc. Angel's Fantasy 'Solar Flair' FCC/AOS)

This grex is similar to the highly awarded Slc. Fire Magic (Lc. Tokyo Magic x Slc. Fire Fantasy). Here we are combining the proven breeding capabilities of Lc. Tokyo Magic (Lc. Irene Finney x L. briegeri) with this exceptional Slc. Angel's Fantasy (Slc. Fire Fantasy x Slc. Bright Angel). The expectation is for flowers showing improvements over the similar cross, Slc. Fire Magic.  The flower base color will be a bright yellow, with many displaying brilliant red flares and red lips on compact, easy-to-bloom plants.

Slc. Granata Sunrise (Lc. Tokyo Magic '6-1' AM/AOS x Slc. Wasp Nest 'Red Red' HCC/AOS)

This is a very showy cross!  Clusters of 5-9 flowers in a variety of sunset colors are presented above the foliage on strong stems. This is my 4th remake of this grex - it's back by popular demand!  The plants are compact growers, and I expect them to have 2-3 inflorescences by the time they're in 4” pots.  This will make for *lots* of color in a small space!  This Picture 3983 is a good example of the quality from this cross.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Dream Circle 'SVO' AM/AOS x Lc. Spring Fires 'Lenette #3')

The late Frank Fordyce bred Dream Circle (Slc. Circle of Life x Pot. Hisako Akatsuka).  This very successful hybrid has earned 11 AOS awards, based on its rich fuchsia-magenta color, excellent full shape, large lip, and overall size.  I have been using Spring Fires a lot over the last few years.  It's a proven parent and, importantly, breeds for increased flower count, red flower color and strong stems.  Here we are looking for flowers with an intense magenta-red color.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Purple Doll 'Midnight Velvet' AM/AOS x Pot. Rubescence 'SVO' AM/AOS)

These will have intensely colored magenta-red-purple flowers of excellent shape on small plants, maxing out at 6” tall.  Purple Doll (Slc. Pink Doll x Lc. Mini Purple) 'Midnight Velvet' is an amazing plant.  It blooms 3 or 4 times a year, and the flowers have intense magenta-purple color and excellent shape on a small plant standing 5” tall.  Rubescence (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Seagulls Apricot) is a superior breeder of modern red mini and compact cattleyas.  It has shapely deep red flowers with a dark burgundy lip, and it blooms twice a year.  This will be an excellent addition to your collection and is highly recommended!

Epc. Magic Wand (Epc. Kyoguchi 'Peter's Pick'x Lc. Trick or Treat 'Orange Magic' AM/AOS)

This is a great non-traditional hybrid!  It's an amazing flower producer, with mature plants having as many as 35 flowers on a single branched inflorescence.  Spectacular!  Flower color ranges from red to yellow and every color in-between.  The plants are super easy to grow, and the flowers are about 1” across and, did I mention, FRAGRANT?!  Yes - they are!  This is a fun cross with a very different look.  The plants are great growers, and many will flower this spring. Here is one from last year with 2 branched stems holding 62 flowers and 25 buds!  Picture

Kyoguchi 'Peter's Pick' was selected by Peter Lin of Diamond Orchids.  He grew out a number of selfings and picked this one as exceptional for its great color, branching habit, form and fragrance.  Laughing Boy (Lc. Dennis Olivas x Blc. Love Sound) blooms with 12-14 lovely flowers in bright yellow with red flares on the petals and lateral sepals - a great color combination!  This is a non-traditional hybrid with a huge up side.  Can you imagine yellow flowers with dark red flares, and a high flower count on branched inflorescences?  And fragrant, too?  This cross has the potential!

Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat) and its cluster of 8-9 blooms.  The result will be self-supporting stems with large, well-arranged clusters of golden yellow flowers.  Easy growers and bloomers, these will be show stoppers in March!

Slc. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Lana Coryell 'Forevermore' AM/AOS x Lc. Jupiter Drops 'SVO PPYL' AM/AOS)

There is something about pink flowers and yellow lips that gets my attention. Maybe it's the unusual color combination, but they really catch my eye! Lana Coryell (C. walkeriana x Sc. Beaufort) has well-shaped apricot-colored flowers brushed with rose, and a bright yellow lip. The amazing hot pink color and bright yellow lip of Jupiter Drops (Lc. Tiny Treasure x C. Orchidglade) is really striking.  'PPYL' is an abbreviation for Pink Petals Yellow Lip. The full shape and yellow lip of the Lana Coryell combined with the flower count, hot pink color and yellow lip of Jupiter Drops will make for a real improvement in this breeding line. I am looking forward to seeing these begin to bloom!

Lc. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Tokyo Magic 'Hihimanu' x C. lueddemanniana 'Arthur Chadwick' AM/AOS)

Here is a different take on a modern compact Cattleya cross. Tokyo Magic (Lc. Irene Finney x L. briegeri) has been a valuable breeding plant. The cultivar 'Hihimanu' has a cream-colored flower with a purple/red lip, good upright stems and a compact growth habit. The addition of this lueddemanniana, with the large light pink-lavender flowers of 'Arthur Chadwick,' will increase the flower size of this cross and make for plants that bloom in late March/April.  I am optimistic about this cross, which I also made with a darker purple lueddemanniana SVO 6816.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Golden Circle 'OPRL' x Lc. Tokyo Magic '6-1' AM/AOS)
The breeding reputation of Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) is well deserved. This cultivar has superb form: 3.5” orange flowers with red lips produced twice a year on 6” tall plants. Tokyo Magic (Lc. Irene Finney x L. briegeri) has been responsible for 62 registered hybrids that have received 56 AOS awards - quite a record! '6-1' breeds good flower shape, red lips, sturdy stems and a compact growth habit. These desirable characteristics from both parents will make for compact growing plants that will flower in a range of colors from bright yellow to orange, all with red lips and well-presented on strong stems.

Here is a different take on a modern compact Cattleya cross. Tokyo Magic (Lc. Irene Finney x L. briegeri) has been a valuable breeding plant. The cultivar 'Hihimanu' has a cream-colored flower with a purple/red lip, good upright stems and a compact growth habit. The addition of this lueddemanniana, with its dark purple flowers and a touch of darker purple flaring, will increase the flower size of this cross and make for plants that bloom in late March/April. I am optimistic about this cross, which I also made with a light pink-lavender lueddemanniana SVO 6811.

Lc. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Pink Treasure 'Chalice of Life'x C. harrisoniana 'Volcano Queen' mutation)

It's hard to put into words, but there is something so appealing about pink flowers with yellow lips.  Pink Treasure (Lc. Tiny Treasure x C. loddigesii) flowers are produced 4-5 per inflorescence in a beautiful soft pink with golden yellow lips.  C. harrisoniana imparts pink flowers and yellow lips to its offspring.  The cultivar 'Volcano Queen' mutation is a mericlone mutation with improved flower size, shape and substance.  Another meristem mutation of 'Volcano Queen' was awarded an FCC/AOS as C. harrisoniana 'Volcano King.'  Here we will see improved flower size and a reinforcement of the pink flower color and yellow lip, plus increased flower count. We also offer the reciprocal cross; see SVO 6834.

B. NEW HYBRID (B. George Tyler 'Diamond Orchids' AM/AOS x B. digbyana 'Shamrock' AM/AOS)

Thanks to Allen Black and his novelty hybrid of B.George Tyler (B. flagellaris x B. cucullata) we are trying a new direction in breeding at SVO.  The George Tyler has star-shaped flowers that look like a 'super cucullata' with 3 to 4 flowers per inflorescence. By crossing it back to the awarded digbyana we are expecting a larger version of the 'super cucullata' look.  These should be similar to B. David Sander (digbyana x cucullata)   These plants have been treated (T) with Oryzalin, a chemical used to convert diploids into tetraploids.

L. Autoceps (L. autumnalis f. alba x L. anceps 'Disciplinata' HCC/AOS)

Here is an interesting cross between non-standard color forms of two Mexican Laelia species.  I expect that a few will be white with purple flecks (very desirable), some will be pink with purple flecks (nice) and some will be pink with no flecks (okay).  Flower count will be improved to 5-7 per stem, and these should bloom in November before anceps usually flowers.  These plants have been treated (T) with Oryzalin, a chemical used to convert diploids into tetraploids, and are very limited in supply.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Lovely Elaine 'Select' x Pot. Al Thanhauser 'Best One')

Lovely Elaine (Blc. Love Sound x Pot.

Orchidglade x Pot. Rubescence) produces well-rounded dark red flowers with a sparkling texture.  The 4-5 blooms are produced twice a year and are well-supported and arranged.  We can predict that these will produce 4-5 nicely-arranged dark red flowers with darker burgundy lips, and flower shape should be well-rounded.

Orchidglade (C. walkeriana x C. aurantiaca) is a lovely hybrid, producing clusters of orange flowers with yellow lips.  Some of its offspring are very nice, and I discovered that Orchidglade is recessive for color, allowing most of the color from the other parent to come through.  Fire Fantasy is an exotic-colored flower and has bred a number of very successful hybrids with flared flowers: Angel's Fantasy, Fire Magic, and Dream Weaver, to name a few.  With the flower count of Orchidglade and color of Fire Fantasy, we believe this is a great pairing!  Many of these will bloom with lots of exotic flared color patterns in yellow, red and orange, others a solid rose red, and the flowers will be held in clusters on good stems.  Here is one of the first to bloom, spot on!  Picture

Love Sound x Pot. Rubescence) blooms with 4-5 well-supported flowers in light rusty red with a darker burgundy blush/flaring - a color combination not often seen.  These will be compact plants that will produce their first flowers in 3” pots and mature in 4” pots. With plenty of yellow from the influence of Love Sound, these should produce many flowers in yellow shades with blushes, overlays and flaring of reds, burgundy or even rusty oranges. The well-supported flowers will be produced in clusters of 3-5.

Toshie Aoki shows the strong influence of the lip from C. dowiana.  The bright yellow flowers of Toshie Aoki are recessive for color but intensify purple dramatically.  Paradise Rose combines these traits and produces intense crimson-red-purple flowers. Rubescent Fire (Lc. Spring Fires x Pot. Rubescence) has produced red hot reds, with great color, great shape and strong stems.  These offspring are going to have incredibly intense red color, superior shape, well-supported flowers, a compact growth habit and the tendency to flower twice a year.  Truly the epitome of the modern red compact Cattleya!

Spotted flowers have been a favorite of mine for years. Seeing those wonderful spots in the heat of summer is a spectacular sight.

Landate (C. leopoldii x C. aclandiae) looks a lot like a floriferous C. aclandiae with 4-6 very showy, fragrant flowers.  The 'SVO' cultivar was a gift, and came from the breeding program of Roy Tokunaga.  The schilleriana has the appearance of a tetraploid but hasn't been confirmed.  Its flowers are exceptionally large and have a surprisingly hard substance. Which brings us to the grex Mr. Bojangles,..  With these three bifoliate species (aclandiae, leopoldii, schilleriana), we can be assured that the flowers will be a dark chestnut brown with darker spotting and a broad intense magenta lip, plus a spicy fragrance.  These are going to look like super improved schillerianas!  To the best of my knowledge, this grex has not been widely offered.  Here's your chance to get something great!

Have you ever imagined a flower with coerulea sepals peppered with darker blue spots and petals flared in blue? This cross could be the first! C. Leoloddiglossa has been a remarkable hybrid. It is the first highly successful coerulea (blue) flower spotted with darker coerulea spots!! The lineage contains three Cattleya species: leopoldii, loddigesii, amethystoglossa, thus the name: Leoloddiglossa (leo-loddi-glossa). 'SVO Baby Blue' has excellent shape and color, and carries 20 or more well-presented flowers. C. loddigesii 'Blue Sky' is still one of the nicest coerulea forms of the species, even though it was recognized with its AM/AOS in 1984, over 33 years ago! This cultivar blooms with flat flowers having nice color and a darker lip. It also produced 4-5 flowers per inflorescence.  With this grex, we are expecting an overall improvement in flower form along with wider segments, flatter shape, larger flowers and, of course, coerulea color and darker spotting with darker blue lips. For contrast, these flowers will have a bright yellow spot centrally. This is an exceptional cross and the very latest in coerulea Cattleya breeding.  Don't miss these!

Coerulea color forms of bifoliate cattleyas are rare, and these first hybrids are turning out to be spectacular! I first offered C. Gaudii f. coerulea in 2013, and here is the description I wrote then: In the past this grex was called C. Hybrida when C. leopoldii was considered C. guttata.   This will be the most desirable as they will be coerulea blue!  Bifoliate coerulea flowers are very rare and collectable with the most desirable having blue spots.  Mature plants will have heads of 10 or more blue flowers.  The first use of coerulea parents in this grex. Don't miss out on these.” Those plants sold out in just a few weeks, and it's been a long wait to produce another batch. Those first plants from 2013 are now reaching maturity and blooming with strong stems of 9-11 flowers in a beautiful shade of coerulea blue with darker spotting. For this remake, the plants have been treated (T) with Oryzalin, a chemical used to convert diploids into tetraploids. I am expecting some exceptional plants from this remake. Limited supply.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Virginia Dickey 'Diamond Orchids' AM/AOS x Pot. Rubescence 'SVO' AM/AOS)

Virginia Dickey (Slc. Pink Doll x Sl. Pole-Star) is a darling mini-catt.  The plants flower in 3” pots and have sturdy stems holding 2-3 bright red flowers of superior form.  The solid dark red flowers and even darker red lip of Rubescence (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Seagulls Apricot) will give the progeny of this hybrid excellent shape and flowers in a rich intense red-purple color.  I think these will look like superior Virginia Dickey's with larger flowers.  These are outstanding mini-catts, and almost everyone will be superb.  As a bonus, these flower easily in 3” pots.  Look at this Picture , this is how good these mini-catts are!

Slc. Lady Rebecca (Slc. Purple Doll 'Midnight Velvet' AM/AOS x Lc. Tydea '5 by 7')

Purple Doll (Slc. Pink Doll x Lc. Mini Purple) has been an excellent cross, and the cultivar 'Midnight Velvet' is an amazing bloomer.  Mature plants continually produce new growths, flowering 3-4 times a year.  On top of that, the color is an eye-catching, intense, velvety magenta-purple, and the flower form is full and flat.  Here, this excellent cultivar is combined with the beautifully formed flower of Tydea (C. trianae 'Cashens' FCC/AOS x L. pumila 'SVO' HCC/AOS)  '5 by 7' is surprisingly large, with 5” blooms on a 7” tall plant!  This new cross has huge potential for deep purple flower color, with wide well-formed petals, flat flowers, large full-shaped lips and big blooms on a very small plant.  These are going to have flower size and shape resembling a standard Cattleya, but the plants will be 5-7” tall!!!

Coerulea

In Cattleyas the 'coerulea' color or 'blue' as it is referred to, is very intriguing and rare in nature. In the early years of blue breeding there were not many known species, so breeding was limited to a few possibilities. Today, we have many species and hybrids to breed with, and the quality of blue flowers has been improving rapidly. Don't miss the spotted blue crosses…These are a great addition for the discriminating collector.

SVO  6565     
Lc. Mini Blue Star (Lc. Cornelia 'Floralia' x Lc. Mini Purple 'Blue Pacific' 4N)

This line of breeding produces surprisingly large flowers - often up to 4” across - on plants only 6-7” tall.  Cornelia (C. labiata x L. pumila) has excellent flower size on a small plant, with beautiful coerulea color and a darker coerulea lip.  Mini Purple (C. walkeriana x L. pumila) has great color and flowers several times a year.  Here we will have 3-4” coerulea flowers with darker coerulea lips on plants just 6-7” tall.  Plants will start to flower in 3” pots.  Very limited supply.  Check out these first to bloom Pic1, Pic 2

C. NEW HYBRID (C. Leoloddiglossa 'SVO Speckled Blue' FCC/AOS x C. loddigesii f. coerulea 'Blue Sky' AM/AOS)

Have you ever imagined a flower with coerulea sepals peppered with darker blue spots and petals flared in blue? This cross could be the first! C. Leoloddiglossa has been a remarkable hybrid. It is the first highly successful coerulea (blue) flower spotted with darker coerulea spots!! The lineage contains three Cattleya species: leopoldii, loddigesii, amethystoglossa, thus the name: Leoloddiglossa (leo-loddi-glossa). 'SVO Baby Blue' has excellent shape and color, and carries 20 or more well-presented flowers. C. loddigesii 'Blue Sky' is still one of the nicest coerulea forms of the species, even though it was recognized with its AM/AOS in 1984, over 33 years ago! This cultivar blooms with flat flowers having nice color and a darker lip. It also produced 4-5 flowers per inflorescence.  With this grex, we are expecting an overall improvement in flower form along with wider segments, flatter shape, larger flowers and, of course, coerulea color and darker spotting with darker blue lips. For contrast, these flowers will have a bright yellow spot centrally. This is an exceptional cross and the very latest in coerulea Cattleya breeding.  Don't miss these!

C. Gaudii f. coerulea (C. loddigesii f. coerulea 'Blue Sky' AM/AOS x C. leopoldii f. coerulea 'Kathleen' JC/AOS)

Coerulea color forms of bifoliate cattleyas are rare, and these first hybrids are turning out to be spectacular! I first offered C. Gaudii f. coerulea in 2013, and here is the description I wrote then: In the past this grex was called C. Hybrida when C. leopoldii was considered C. guttata.   This will be the most desirable as they will be coerulea blue!  Bifoliate coerulea flowers are very rare and collectable with the most desirable having blue spots.  Mature plants will have heads of 10 or more blue flowers.  The first use of coerulea parents in this grex. Don't miss out on these.” Those plants sold out in just a few weeks, and it's been a long wait to produce another batch. Those first plants from 2013 are now reaching maturity and blooming with strong stems of 9-11 flowers in a beautiful shade of coerulea blue with darker spotting. For this remake, the plants have been treated (T) with Oryzalin, a chemical used to convert diploids into tetraploids. I am expecting some exceptional plants from this remake. Limited supply.

C. NEW HYBRID (C. Leoloddiglossa 'Dark Blue' x C. Pittiae 'Blue Spots')

This is the next generation of darker blue spotted breeding!  With this new grex, we are looking for bold spots, broad lips and a shorter plant habit.  Leoloddiglossa is made up of three coerulea forms of the Cattleya species: leopoldii, loddigesii, and amethystoglossa, thus the name leo-loddi-glossa.  These have been really nice - check out the pictures: Pic 1, Pic 2, Pic 3 So how do you make Leoloddiglossa better?  Add the coerulea form of C. Pittiae (C. schilleriana x C. loddigesii), which, in addition to being a spotted coerulea flower, has a bright yellow dot in the lip. It really makes the flowers pop, and I expect this feature to be transmitted to the offspring.  I am really looking forward to flowering these!

C. Poseidon Lake (C. bicolor v. coerulea 'SVO' x C. Leoloddiglossa 'SVO Speckled Blue' FCC/AOS)

How do you make Leoloddiglossa (Loddiglossa x leopoldii) better?  Add bicolor!  The broad bicolor lip will improve the lip width of the progeny.  I expect the flowers to be similar in color, shape and number to Leoloddiglossa, but much wider lips will give a fullness not previously seen.  This is very nice, unique hybrid, with excellent vigor.  Not to be missed! Check out this first to bloom Picture.

C. Becky Culver (C. Loddiglossa f. coerulea 'SVO' x C. bicolor f. coerulea 'SVO')

Loddiglossa (C. loddigesii x C. amethystoglossa) is the parent of several very successful blue spotted hybrids.  It blooms with 15+ flowers in light coerulea blue with a few fine blue spots.  The addition of bicolor will add a broad lip and deep color.  Flowers will be light coerulea with darker coerulea blue lips, and a few may even have green flowers and blue lips.  These are growing really well and seem to be very vigorous.

Collecting select and awarded Cattleya species has been a passion of mine for many years. The collection now contains over 700 selected plants!  Recently, I started breeding the “best of the best” in an effort to provide these superior and often hard to find Cattleya species available for the hobbyist.

2nd release SVO 5600      
L. tenebrosa (L. tenebrosa 'Stewarts 68807' x L. tenebrosa 'Rainforest' FCC/AOS)

'Stewarts 68807' was given to me by Rick Wells, a long-time Cattleya collector in Southern California.  He tells the story of how this plant was selected out of many superb cultivars, because it had the largest flowers and the strongest stem, holding 6 blooms well above the foliage.  It does not have the dark color of some tenebrosa cultivars - the flower is more honey colored - but I agree with Rick that it's one of the best tenebrosa clones when it comes to flower size and carriage.  Still considered one of the best ever, 'Rainforest' blooms with 4 to 5 impressive flowers that are almost 8.5” wide – these are BIG flowers!  The genetics in this cross may give us the best size, flower count and carriage yet seen.  These are growing nicely and showing good vigor.

C. warscewiczii (C. warscewiczii 'Alexander's Var'. x C. warscewiczii 'Michael' AM/AOS)

This has to be my favorite labiate Cattleya species: tall plants, huge flowers, and beautiful lips – what more could a grower want?  I have been carefully collecting these for years and selecting the best quality flowers and plants for vigor, an important consideration with warscewiczii, as they are a bit slow to mature.  'Alexander's Var.' is a strong-growing plant producing a higher-than-average flower count, with as many as 7-8 blooms per stem.  'Michael' has great form with large 7.5” flowers and grows well; its roots and root system appear to be a bit more robust, too.  These are  growing well, and I expect good stems holding 4-7 large lavender flowers, with full-formed lips and two yellow 'eyes' in the throat.  This desirable Cattleya species is not often seen for sale and can be very expensive when available.

C. warscewiczii v. coerulea (C. warscewiczii v. coerulea 'Ituango' x C. warscewiczii v. coerulea 'SVO')

Coerulea forms are very rare in nature, and good coerulea clones of warscewiczii are highly prized. 'Ituango' is a well-known, good-growing coerulea form with great color and shape; its flower is smaller than the lavender forms. 'SVO' is a selection from some flasks imported years ago from Colombia.  This clone grew really well and was one of the first to bloom, with good color and form, but also smaller than the lavender forms. I am expecting nice coerulea color, darker lips and the trademark yellow eyes.  The plants are growing well and have nice vigor.

Superior genetics here with excellent potential for improved flower size, color, flat lips and high flower count.  This is not the easiest species to grow (you need to be sure the plants dry out between waterings in the fall, winter and spring), but the 5-7 spotted flowers with large red/purple lips are not soon forgotten.  These will make excellent plants for basket or mounts, which will help to ensure the necessary drying of the root system.  This is one to get!

C. dowiana (C. dowiana 'Claire' x self)

I don't often make selfings but when the best is far better than the rest, a selfing may be the preferred option.  C. dowiana is a very desirable Cattleya adored for its color and beautiful gold-veined lip, one of the most remarkable in the Cattleya alliance.  Here are some tips to improving your success with this species.  Plants produce new roots after the new pseudobulb matures.  If the plant is blooming size, the new roots will develop from the flowered pseudobulb a few weeks after it blooms in summer.  If the plant is a seedling or nearing maturity, the new roots will emerge from the recently-matured growth.  This is the time to repot.  New roots produced during the late summer and fall have to stay healthy through winter and spring, as these roots support the new growths and flowers the following year.  Plant rest in winter, the root system should be kept drier during the winter months.  During the winter period maintain 70-80 degree days and 60-65 degree nights with 50% humidity.  In late spring, once the new growth is about half developed, irrigation frequency can be increased.

C. leopoldii(C. leopoldii 'SVO Prince' x C leopoldii 'Paul' AM/AOS)

Breeding bifoliate Cattleya species requires that only the best parental stock be used, as the plants are slow to mature. These two superior parents make an exceptionally fine pairing. 'SVO Prince' has remarkable flower color, shape and substance; I consider it to be the best of my leopoldii. 'Paul' is particularly nice, producing very dark chocolate flowers with darker spots and a shapely lip. These will take a while to mature, but let me assure you that this cross was made with some of the finest leopoldii parent plants available. If you want the very best, these seedlings will be worth the wait. A few tips on growing these. They root just after the new growth matures in summer, and it's best to repot at this time. These require a winter rest period, so water sparingly from late November through April. I water once every 14 -18 days during this time period.

The name of this grex, Naranja en Flor, is Spanish for “Orange in Flower.”  Over the years, I have been impressed by the breeding qualities of both Trick or Treat and Spring Fires, and I am very confident that these will turn out great!  Plants will have strong stems holding 10-15 or more starry red to orange flowers above the foliage in March.  Mature plants will be 14-16” tall and produce a spectacular display.  There is also a great opportunity to see the effect of capsule vs. pollen parent, as the reciprocal cross is also available; see SVO 6697.

Smblc. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Summerland Girl 'Orchidglade' x Schom.schultzei 'Old Sherry')

Here we have something unique.  The background of this grex includes a famous breeding plant from the 1950's and 60's: Lc. Grandee (Lc. Mrs. Medo x C. Aeneas).  This influential hybrid is made up of three species: C. dowiana 75%, C. tenebrosa 12.5%, and C. bicolor 12.5%.  When crossed with C. leopoldii, the result isSummerland Girl, which flowers with an astonishing 21 large, waxy, bright red flowers with contrasting purple-red lips.  The plant is 2' tall and, when in bloom, the inflorescence adds an extra foot - very spectacular!  Now consider the Schom. with a 4' stem displaying, 15 waxy, dark mahogany, undulated flowers with brilliant fuchsia lips. The combination should be stunning!  These will be big plants and produce a spectacular floral display of 15 or more glossy red-burgundy flowers with bright fuchsia lips.  What more needs to be said?

Blc. NEW HYBRID(Lc. Maui Plum 'Volcano Queen' AM/AOS x Blc. Chinese Bronze 'Marco Polo')

Some of my favorite cattleyas are the bifoliates, and I've made an effort to acquire many choice plants as breeding stock.  Over the past few years I've seen little breeding along these lines, so, since they're some of my favorites, I made a few crosses to share with all you Cattleya lovers!  Maui Plum (Lc. Summerland Girl x C. leopoldii) blooms with strong inflorescences that can produce as many as 26 dark mahogany flowers with a few random burgundy spots and a contrasting lip. Chinese Bronze (C. bicolor x Blc. Chinese Jade) has very flat, rounded and wide bronze petals with a bright lip reminiscent of the bicolor parent.  Here we have high flower count and excellent color crossed with very wide petals and great color, and these summer bloomers will give great color in the heat.  I have a very good feeling about this cross!

Here is another great summer blooming bifoliate cross to share with you.  Plum Lulu (Lc. Maui Plum x C.

Here is a different spin with summer-blooming bifoliate breeding.Al Thanhauser (C. Orchidglade x Pot. Rubescence) produces well-rounded dark red flowers with a sparkling texture.  The 4-5 blooms are produced twice a year and are well-supported and arranged.  Summerland Girl (C. leopoldii x Lc. Grandee) flowers with an astonishing 21 large, waxy, bright red flowers and a contrasting purple-red lip.  This cross has surprising potential!  It may very well produce some of the best-shaped red flowers of summer, and there could be as many as 10 flowers presented well above the foliage.

Lc. NEW HYBRID (Lc.  Issy 'SVO' HCC/AOS x Lc. Summerland Girl 'Orchidglade')

Here is another cross that is going to produce very large plants and flower in the summer. Issy (L. tenebrosa x C. leopoldii) stands 28” tall, carrying 5-7, huge 7” bronze flowers with red lips on very strong stems.  Summerland Girl (C. leopoldii x Lc. Grandee) flowers with an astonishing 21 large, waxy, bright red flowers with contrasting purple-red lips.  The plant is 2' tall and, when in bloom, the inflorescence adds an extra foot - very spectacular!  Expect these to be big.  Mature plants 2' tall will be no surprise, but when you see the 12-16” inflorescences holding 10 or more bronze-red flowers with dark red lips 3' high off the ground, *that* will be surprising and breathtaking!

Chia Lin) is a large standard type with a deep red flower and lots of Blc. Oconee influence.  This cross incorporates Chocolate Drop 'SVO,' a cultivar with excellent quality that produces big heads of fragrant, waxy dark red flowers.  These will bloom in rich reds to dark oxblood colors with 4 to 7 flowers held above the foliage.  When they flower in October and November, these will be spectacular!

Blc. NEW HYBRID(Blc. Tropical Upgrade 'SVO' x Blc. Guess What 'SVO' AM/AOS)

The recently-registered Tropical Upgrade (Blc. Guess What x Lc. Tropical Sunset) blooms with 5-7 large orange-gold flowers with red lips on sturdy stems.  Line breeding it back toGuess What (Blc. Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat) will further intensify the orange-gold color and increase flower count while retaining the red lips and strong stems. A similar cross is SVO 6946.  It will be very interesting to see what comes from line breeding with different combinations of parents.  Same as SVO 6935.

Each of these parents has an excellent breeding record. Guess What (Blc. Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat) has bright golden-yellow color and 9-10 well displayed flowers. Chocolate Drop (C. leopoldii x C. aurantiaca) has many beautifully-arranged waxy red flowers.  The prediction is for large clusters of butterscotch-colored flowers!  However, some will be a bit more orange and others more red.  I'm looking forward to seeing this one bloom.

C. NEW HYBRID(C. Orchidglade 'SVO' HCC/AOS x C. Chocolate Drop 'SVO' AM/AOS)

Orchidglade (C. walkeriana x C. aurantiaca) is a lovely hybrid, producing clusters of orange flowers with yellow lips.  Some of its offspring are very nice, and I discovered that Orchidglade is recessive for color, allowing most of the color from the other parent to come through.  Chocolate Drop (C. guttata (leopoldii) x C. aurantiaca) has many beautiful-arranged waxy red flowers on a strong stem.  This is going to produce large clusters of waxy red to orange flowers supported well above the foliage and is going to be a very showy hybrid!  The reciprocal cross is also available; see SVO 7003.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Golden Wax 'Lone Star II' HCC/AOS x Blc. Guess What 'SVO' AM/AOS)

Years ago I made many nice hybrids with Golden Wax (Slc. Kauai Starbright x C. Chocolate Drop).  I learned that Golden Wax was dominant in breeding for heads of brightly colored flowers. The cultivar 'Lone Star II' produces big clusters of waxy yellow flowers.  Guess What (Blc. Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat), with its 9-10 well-displayed bright golden-yellow flowers is playing an important role in our breeding programs these days. This cross is going to deliver big clusters of yellow to yellow-gold flowers at a time of year when it will be unexpected – January!
