2013 Australian Dendrobium List

Australian Dendrobiums are bred with species that originate only in Australia.  The Aussies have done amazing work in the breeding of these and they have become very popular in Australia. 

Here in the USA we rarely see the advanced hybrids for sale.  We do see Den. kingianum and anyone who grows it knows how hardy they are.  The Aussie Dendrobiums are all very hardy.  They do well with hot summers (75-95 deg. days) and cool winters (40-55 deg. nights).  I have been trialing them all over the USA and have had customers report good successes in Florida, Virginia, New York, Michigan, Oklahoma, and California.  The flowers are fragrant and will fill the growing area with a wonderful aroma.  Most importantly they re-flower from the old pseudobulbs.  I have seen plants produce 12 inflorescences from a single bulb over a 5 year period that is a nice feature!  Due to this re-flowering characteristic these plants form beautiful specimens in a relatively short period of time.

Here is the first significant offering in the USA of what our friends in Australia have worked so diligently on.   Give them a try.

Den. Aussie Parade ‘Carrot Splash’ x Den. Allyn Star ‘Crikey’ AM/AOS
Aussie Parade is an excellent breeder; it is a medium sized compact plant that flowers 2-3 times a year.  Allyn Star is a spectacular bloomer with big sprays of flowers.  Here we expect yellow flowers with red markings carried 15 or more per inflorescence.
 
SVO 5035
(Den. Beryl Wuth x Den. Hilda Poxon) ‘SVO’ x sib
These will be from dark to light purple flowers with white to dark purple lips.  These are excellent growers and bloomers which make an excellent floral show.

Den. Gillieston Jazz ‘Steven’ x (Den. Tosca x Rutherford Starbright) ‘Red Wine’
Gillieston Jazz has the best deep purple-red color I have ever seen in an Aussie Den.  The plant is also very compact and free flowering.  This combination is for deep purple-red flowers.  Don’t miss these as they are very nice, and also limited in supply.
 
SVO 5040 
Den. Gillieston Jazz ‘Steven’ x Den. Victorian Bride ‘Genesis’
Victorian Bride has a very chunky flower form, has white flowers with purple markings, and it’s really showy.  Expect nice chunky flowers with white and purple markings, however some will be solid dark purple-red.  These will also be a bit more compact growing plants.

Here we have paired a superior semi-alba (white with red lip) kingianum to the green of Hilda Poxon.  We are hoping for light green flowers with red lips, these will be exceptional.  I also expect some white and lavender colors to appear.
