Compact Cattleyas

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!

Lc. Japan Sunrise (C. Dubiosa 'Scully's' HCC/AOS x Lc. Hsinying Excell 'DG' HCC/AOS)

Dubiosa 'Scully's' (trianae x loddigesii) has a charm that is quite appealing, and the long-lived flowers easily last for 2 months.  Hsinying Excell (Lc. Excellescombe x L. briegeri) has very attractive flowers in light lavender with purple flaring on the petals and sepals. The shape is nicely rounded, and the strong stems hold 7-8 blossoms above the foliage.  Its compact growth habit is a great attribute and will make for an attractive plant habit in its offspring.  Here we are expecting light pink/lavender flowers, many with purple flaring on the petals. The stems will hold the 5-6 flowers above the foliage, and flowers will have excellent lasting qualities.

Pot. California Queen (Pot. Hisako Akatsuka 'Volcano Queen' HCC/AOS x Slc. California Apricot 'Orange Circle' HCC/AOS)

Hisako Akatsuka has sired several superior hybrids and is known to pass along its fine flower shape, color and compact growth habit. California Apricot has a prestigious heritage as a quality breeder and has created many well-known hybrids, including three standouts:  Hazel Boyd, Final Touch, and Seagull's Apricot.  Combined, these three have received an amazing 89 flower quality awards!!!  When these good breeding qualities come together, the expectation is high, to say the least.  Expect compact plant habit, twice-a-year flowering, bright red to red/purple flower color, and extra fine flower form with full-shaped darker lips.

Slc. Angel's Dream (Lc. Mari's Song 'CTM 217' HCC/AOS x Slc. Bright Angel 'Red Knight')

There is an interesting characteristic that occurs in hybrids with C. intermedia v. aquinii in their background: the lip color is often expressed on the petals. Mari's Song (C. Cherry Chip x Lc. Irene Finney) is one of these hybrids and has a long history of breeding flared flowers.  The bright red color of Bright Angel (Slc. Precious Stones x Soph. coccinea) will dominate the color of the offspring, and the yellow area in the center of the lip will often appear as flares in the central area of the petals, appearing as a yellow flare. The majority of these will be red flowers with yellow flares in the center of the petals, the reverse of the color patterns usually seen. Very cool hybrid.  Take a look at this Picture

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Higher Multiplier 'Shocking Red' x Pot. Jersey Summer 'SVO')

This is state-of-the-art red breeding. Higher Multiplier (Pot. Rubescence x Slc. Pink Doll) has excellent flower shape and beautiful red color.  Plants flower twice a year, and fit nicely in 4” pots when mature.  Jersey Summer (Pot. Paradise Rose x Pot. Dream Circle) has full-formed flat flowers with intense fuchsia color.  Look for superior color with this hybrid.  Flowers will be an amazing intense red/fuchsia and flat with excellent shape, and plants will be compact and bloom twice a year.

Pot. Glenda Lask (Pot. Little Toshie 'Gold Country' AM/AOS x Slc. Fire Fantasy 'H&R')

Little Toshie (Blc. Toshie Aoki x Sc. Beaufort) 'Gold Country' is a superb grower, with excellent flower quality and color, and blooms 2-4 times a year on compact plants.  Truly an excellent hybrid! With a long history of success, Fire Fantasy is well known for its ability to breed flowers with flares.  We are expecting well-above-average flower shape with large full lips. Many flowers will be in sunset colors with bright contrasting flares on the petals, and these will bloom twice a year. The compact plants will mature at 6 to 7” tall.  I have high expectations for this cross.

SVO 6981
(Pot. Picotee Flight 'SVO Picotee' x Slc. Mem. Trudi Marsh 'Sun Flair')
The flowers of Picotee Flight (Horizon Flight x Love Sound) have a nice color combination: yellow flowers with a beautiful red picotee around the petal margins.  The plants also have sturdy stems holding 5-7 flowers above the foliage. Mem. Trudi Marsh (Tangerine Jewel x Cosmic Delite) stands only 4” tall.  The 2.5” flowers are produced twice a year and are yellow/orange, with interesting flaring on the petals.   I believe that Mem. Trudi Marsh is going to produce dramatic petal flaring in this hybrid. The flowers will be well-shaped, and the compact plants will mature at 7-8” tall.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Pat Thrall 'Magenta Fire' AM/AOS x Pot. Jerry Rehfield 'Paradise Fuchsia')

The name 'Magenta Fire' is fitting for this cultivar of Pat Thrall (Lc. Bonanza Queen x Slc. Circle of Life).  Flowers are magenta-pink with excellent shape and very wide petals.  The flower form is really beautiful!  The plant is a large compact type that stands about 10” tall.  The flowers of Jerry Rehfield (Pot. Hisako Akatsuka x Pot. Hawaiian Prominence) have an intense magenta-fuchsia color with a beautiful lip sporting a bright yellow center; it's quite a color contrast. The flowers are of excellent shape and substance, and the plant stands 8” tall.  Magenta should be the name for this hybrid - the flower color is going to be spectacular!  Flowers will be around 4” across with great shape, and the plants will be compact, maturing at 8” tall.  Overall, this is looking very promising.

Pot. Spring Prominence (Pot. Hawaiian Prominence 'America' AM/AOS x Lc. Spring Fires 'Lenette #1')

One of our long-term breeding goals is the development of plants with strong inflorescences holding heads of well-shaped red flowers.  This cross incorporates parents with key traits towards this goal.  The intense purple-red color and bright yellow throat of Hawaiian Prominence (Hisako Akatsuka x Slc. Wendy's Redstone) commands attention, and its well-shaped flowers are displayed nicely on strong stems. Spring Fires (Lc. Fires of Spring x Lc. Fire Island) has strong upright stems carrying 5-9 red flowers with darker red lips.  It has proven to be an excellent parent, with dominance for color, a sturdy inflorescence, and bloom period.  The same cross is available as SVO 7097 (apparently, I really wanted to make this), and the reciprocal is also available as SVO 7115.

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

Chocolate Drop (C. guttata (leopoldii) x C. aurantiaca) has many beautifully-arranged waxy red flowers on a strong stem.  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.  This hybrid will produce large clusters of waxy red to orange flowers supported well above the foliage and is going to be very showy!

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Blc. Love Sound 'Dogashima' AM/AOS x Slc. Life's Melody 'SVO')

You can't say enough good things about the breeding qualities of Love Sound (L. briegeri x Blc. Bouton D'Or).  It has proven itself over and over as a valuable parent and is dominant for yellow flower color, form, stem and plant habit. Life's Melody (Slc. Circle of Life x Lc. Magic Melody) is a surprisingly nice hybrid with excellent flower shape and a good, sturdy inflorescence. Flower color ranges from yellow with red flares and a red lip to rose/lavender with purple flares and a purple-red lip. Breeding with Love Sound will warm up the flower color, making for more yellow and orange “sunset” tones with red flares, and maintain the existing good qualities of each parent.

Blc. Kaboom (Blc. Schroeder's Love 'SVO' AM/AOS x Blc. Guess What 'SVO' AM/AOS)

Schroder's Love (C. schroderae x Love Sound) lends its great flower form, size and strong stem to this grex.  Guess What (Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat) adds its high flower count of 9-1l bright orange blooms on a strong inflorescence.  The great color and presentation of the flowers, like an explosion, inspired the grex name "Kaboom!"  A better name might have been “Ka-bloom.”  These are really nice and not to be overlooked!  >>Picture<<

Lc. Tropical Trick (Lc. Trick or Treat 'SVO' 4n x Lc. Tropical Sunset 'Oceans Heaven')

Every spring I enjoy seeing Lc. Trick or Treat and its hybrids bloom, with their large heads of starry, brightly-colored flowers. Tropical Sunset (C. Horace x Tropic Glow) has large orange flowers with full, dark red lips, well-presented on a strong inflorescence.  Simply put, this is an excellent hybrid! Trick or Treat (L. Icarus x Lc. Chit Chat) produces amazing heads of 15 or more starry orange flowers, and will assure high flower count.  These good-growing plants will carry 7-11 orange flowers with red lips – a very attractive color combination.  These will be super hybrids, with lots of brightly colored flowers for February and March.

SVO 7008      
Eplc. Magic Wand(Lc. Trick or Treat 'SVO' 4n x Epc. Kyoguchi 'Peter's Pick')

This is a great hybrid, and the robust plants grow and bloom well in any condition.  The yellow to gold flowers have red-striped lips, and the inflorescences are branched with many 1.25” blooms.  Best of all, these are fragrant - yes, fragrant flowers!  This is a great non-traditional hybrid.   Flower color ranges from yellow to orange, with red-striped lips.  Plants are super easy to grow.  Did I mention that they're also FRAGRANT?!  Yes - they are!  This is a fun cross with a very different look.  Plants are great growers, and many will flower this spring. Here's one from last year with 2 branched stems holding 62 flowers and 25 buds!  Picture  Same as SVO 7025.

SVO 7011
Pot. Forbidden Love (Pot. William Farrell 'Native Son' x Blc. Love Sound 'Dogashima' AM/AOS)

What beautiful plants this cross make!  The robust bulbs hold upright leaves - very handsome. The distinguished heritage in the breeding of William Farrell (Slc. Helen Veliz x Bc. Llano) is impressive, and its ancestry is a veritable who's who of cattleya breeding in the 1950's and 60's.  'Native Son' has an impressive flower in a beautiful soft peach, and the strong stems hold 5-6 well-arranged flowers above the foliage. Love Sound is a modern breeding line.  The compact plants produce upright flower spikes presenting 7-8 solid yellow flowers with very pleasing shape. This new grex will produce strong stems of well-shaped and well-arranged flowers, and best yet is the rarely seen peach color that the flowers should display.
3” pots $14

SVO 7014
Lc. Cherokee Star (Lc. Trick or Treat 'Orange Magic' AM/AOS x L. anceps 'White Wonder')

The goal here is plants that bloom with long arching stems carrying 7-9 orange flowers favoring the look of L. anceps. These will make excellent outdoor grower in frost-free areas and will be great for baskets or even mounted. Excellent growth habit and vigor.
3” pots $15

SVO 7015
Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Velvet Rubies 'SVO' x Pot. Star Fire 'Xmas Red')

We have been working a long time toward this cross.  The goal is to breed a plant that will produce 3 to 4 shapely dark red flowers that are well presented on sturdy stems. Velvet Rubies (Pot. Rubescence x Slc. Tangerine Jewel) has amazing red color and great flower form. Star Fire (Lc. Trick or Treat x Pot. Rubescence) has the red color and a good stem with 7 flowers.  Having Rubescence as an ancestor on both sides will help to assure red color and full flower shape, and Trick or Treat will strengthen the stem and increase flower count.
3” pots $15

SVO 7016
Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Loud Nine 'Hot Heart' x Pot. Rubescent Fire 'SVO Fire Bomb')

This is another hybrid we've been working toward for some time.  The objective is well-supported stems of 4-5 flowers of good form in deep red.  Loud Nine (Pot. Rubescence x Sc. Orpetii) has excellent red color and shape. Rubescent Fire (Lc. Spring Fires x Por. Rubescence) was another good step in this breeding direction: the flowers have good form, the desired color and a stem that supports them well. This cross will assure dark red flower color with improved form, and we are still hoping to see 3-4 blooms on a strong stem.

SVO 7017      
Pot. Lovely Fantasy (Slc. Fire Fantasy 'Royalty' x Blc. Love Sound 'Dogashima' AM/AOS)

Fire Fantasy is a reliable breeding plant.  It's dominant for transmitting colorful flares and compact growth habit to its offspring. Love Sound is just as reliable, but for shape, color, and growth habit.  These are really going to be nice!  The predominantly yellow flowers will have wide petals with red picotee on the margins, displayed 3-4 on sturdy stems above the foliage. Flower tones will be warm and colorful  - a cheery hybrid!

SVO 7018
Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Star Fire 'Xmas Red' x Pot. My Precious 'Valentine Gift')

Star Fire (Lc. Trick or Treat x Pot. Rubescence) has excellent red color and a strong stem with 7 flowers; it is proving to be a good parent. My Precious (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Precious Katie) is a well-formed, deep red flower with darker burgundy.  Plants are compact and produce 3 nicely-held flowers per stem. Blc. Oconee is found in each of the parents used here, assuring deep red color and a burgundy lip. Flowers will have full shape and the 3-4 blooms will be presented well on sturdy stems.
3” pots $16

SVO 7020
Pot. NEW HYBRID (Blc. Laughing Boy 'Remake' x Slc. Angel Treat 'SVO Flares')

Big heads of yellow flowers with red flared petals are always showstoppers. Laughing Boy (Blc. Dennis Olivas x Blc. Love Sound) has this great color combination, and Angel Treat (Slc. Angel Eyes x Lc. Trick or Treat) has yellow/orange flowers with a red picotee on the petals. Both plants have 7-9 flowers well-presented on strong stems above the foliage. Yellow flowers with red flares displayed above the foliage are really special. This is a new advancement for SVO in this breeding area. We are looking forward to seeing the eye-catching flowers when these start to bloom. Very Limited

Pot. Mem. Geri Male (Pot. Golden Circle 'OPRL' x Blc. Love Sound 'Dogashima' AM/AOS)

Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) has superb form with 3.5” orange flowers and red lips on a 6” tall plant that blooms twice a year.  Love Sound needs little introduction; it is described a number of times in this listing.  This cross will produce well-formed flowers, presented nicely on upright stems.  Flowers will be yellow to orange/yellow with a red lip. These will have a compact plant habit, along with ease of growth and blooming, making this a highly desirable cross.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Tokyo Life 'Dec. 1st.' x Pot. Telling Lies 'SVO')

Tokyo Life (Lc. Tokyo Magic x Slc. Circle of Life) has been successful on several levels, with plants producing flower with excellent shape and a variety of great colors on compact plants. Telling Lies (Pot. Rubescence x Pot. Love Passion) has orange flowers suffused red with a diamond dust sparkling texture.  The flowers have good shape and strong stems.  These are going to be robust plants with a compact habit. The sturdy stems will hold 4-7 well-formed flowers in a range of sunset colors.  This hybrid is significant for SVO; we have been working toward this type of breeding for some time.  This cross will show us the results of our efforts!  These will have well-formed flowers on strong stems with high flower count.  Reciprocal crosses offer the opportunity to evaluate the difference in influence of capsule vs. pollen parent. If you've ever wondered about these differences, here is a great opportunity to see for yourself. The reciprocal is SVO 7023.

Yam. NEW HYBRID (Epc. Kyoguchi 'Peters Pick' x Blc. Love Sound 'Dogashima' AM/AOS)

What a novelty hybrid this is! One parent, Kyoguchi (Enc. aromatica x Gur. aurantiaca), has yellow flowers on branched inflorescences that are highly fragrant. Love Sound has proven itself over and over as a valuable breeder and is dominant for yellow flower color, form, stem and plant habit.  The plants are vigorous, and they should start to flower in 3” pots and mature in 4” pots. These will carry well-formed yellow flowers with red striped lips, and some will exhibit the fragrance and branching habits from the Kyoguchi.  I am eagerly waiting for the first to bloom.

Hawaiian Discovery (Blc. Orange Nuggett x Blc. Bouton D'Or) is a robust plant with flowers of an amazing color – 'Fluorescent Orange,' as the cultivar name indicates.  Seagulls (L. briegeri x L. milleri) is a compact plant with upright stems of 7-9 orange-red flowers. The offspring will resemble the plant habits of Blc. Love Sound and Lc. Tokyo Magic. Flowers will favor orange tones, with 5-7 blooms on sturdy stems.

SVO 7033
Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Al Thanhauser 'The Best One' x Pot. Choco Berry Fondue 'Red Spices')

This is a different style of red breeding.  We have taken the more traditional looking flowers of 'The Best One' and combined them with the novelty waxy red flowers of 'Red Spices'. Al Tanhauser (Pot. Rubescence x C. Orchidglade) has a particularly fine red flower with excellent shape.  The 4 to 5 blooms are reliably produced on strong inflorescences twice a year.   Chocoberry Fondue (C. Chocolate Drop x Pot. Ryo Iwata) flowers with up to 7 blooms in deep saturated bright red colors.  Combined, this amazing color with waxy substance and a strong spicy fragrance are very memorable.  The expectation is for several significant improvements: a strong stem holding 5-7 flowers above the foliage, heavy substance and waxy texture, deep red color with deep burgundy lips, spicy fragrance, and the potential to flower twice a year.  Plants will be large compact types maturing at 8-10” tall.

Slc. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Lisye Sentiasa 'SVO'x Slc. Durban Rose 'SVO')

Lisye Sentiasa (Lc. Mini Purple x Slc. Angel Jack) has flowers in shades of deep vibrant purple - very eye catching!  The small plants flower twice a year with 2 flowers per inflorescence. Durban Rose (Lc. Jose Dias Castro x Slc. Circle of Life) is a new hybrid that sold out quickly in 2016.  Flowers are an attractive uniform pink-lavender with exceptionally wide petals, complemented by a nice lip.  This cross is a new breeding direction for SVO.  We are aiming for large flowers with exceptionally wide petals in dark vibrant purple colors.  To meet our criteria, plants should mature at less than 8” tall and flower twice a year.  This pairing has the potential to achieve those standards.  The reciprocal of this cross is also available (SVO 7061). Reciprocal crosses offer a rare opportunity to evaluate differences in the influence of capsule vs. pollen parent. Here is a great opportunity to see for yourself.

Blc. NEW HYBRID (Blc. Picotee Passion 'Amazing' x Lc. Tokyo Magic '6-1' AM/AOS)

The late Frank Fordyce made the hybrid Blc. Horizon Flight x L. anceps, and when I received the first AOS award on this grex, he allowed me to register it.  I chose the name Picotee Passion.  'Amazing' is not awarded but should be, as it has the most amazing flower color!  Check out this Picture 9064  The 5-6 flowers are rather large and well displayed on an L. anceps-like inflorescence that is about 12” long. Tokyo Magic (Lc. Irene Finney x L. briegeri) is a proven breeder that has given rise to many exceptional hybrids.  It imparts good flower shape, red lip color, sturdy stems and a compact upright plant habit.  With this cross, I'm looking forward to seeing the 5-7 full-shaped flowers held high on strong stems. Flower color is anticipated to be in shades of lavender and yellow, and many will have petals exhibiting a red or lavender picotee.  Very robust plants.  This is a super cool new type of novelty breeding.

Tropical Sunset (C. Horace x Lc. Tropic Glow) has large, shapely orange flowers with a bold red lip. The expectation here is for large orange flowers with contrasting red lips, and the blooms will be well held and beautifully displayed above the foliage.  These will be impressive display plants for spring shows.

Kagaribi Dawn has a brilliant red flower with a very starry shape influenced by the L. cinnabarina in its background. It really has an eye-catching color and shape, and everybody is drawn to this plant when it flowers during February and March.  Trick or Treat (L. Icarus x Lc. Chit Chat) produces amazing heads of 15 or more starry orange flowers and conveys high flower count to its offspring.  This is all about heads of starry flowers!  These will mostly be red, but some will have a touch of orange, and great stems will hold the flowers high.  This is a very showy novelty style of hybrid.

Oconee x Slc. Precious Katie) has a well-formed, deep red flower with a darker burgundy lip.  Plants are compact and produce 3 well-held flowers per stem. We are working to develop those elusive red flowers with good shape on strong stems, and these parents have the potential to deliver!

Pot. Martha's Sunburst (Slc. Tokyo Life 'SVO' HCC/AOS x Pot. Martha Clarke 'Orange Tart')

Tokyo Life (Lc. Tokyo Magic x Slc. Circle of Life) has been successful on several levels, with compact plants producing a variety of great flower colors with excellent shape. Martha Clarke (Blc. Love Sound x Slc. Circle of Life), the grex so good I named it after my wife, has been a great overall hybrid.  The cultivar 'Orange Tart' is considered my best, with excellent shape, color, nice plant habit, and twice-a-year blooming.  When you look at this breeding you see Circle of Life on both sides, and looking even deeper you find the rupicolous L. briegeri on both sides as well.  This ancestry gives an indication of what to expect.  Plants will be compact, and flower color will range from light pastels to yellows and oranges.  Flowers will have nice form, with wide petals on a strong stem holding 3-4 blooms.

Slc. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Tokyo Life 'SVO' HCC/AOS x Lc. Angel Heart 'Hihimanu' AM/AOS)

Here is a speculative cross, and the outcome is a bit hard to predict. Tokyo Life is made by crossing Lc. Tokyo Magic x Slc. Circle of Life.  This pairing has been successful on several levels, with compact plants producing a variety of great flower colors with excellent shape.  Angel Heart (Lc. Puppy Love x C.  Penny Kuroda) has flowers that are a soft pastel pink with pink flaring.  It has a sturdy inflorescence that does a good job of presenting the 5-7 large flowers above the foliage.  I believe the flowers will have good shape and be held well on strong stems.  Flower color is a bit harder to nail down. These could be very soft pasted pinks or darker rose, and even some yellow shades or reds can come from this cross.  I expect that unusual flaring may be present in many of the flowers.  A bit speculative, but worth taking a chance.

Pot. Island Girl (Blc. Goldenzelle 'Lemon Chiffon' AM/AOS x Pot. Little Toshie 'Gold Country' AM/AOS)

I have wanted to make this cross for some time, but Goldenzelle hasn't held capsules long enough to produce viable seed. Tenacity paid off, and we finally got a good capsule and viable seed. Goldenzelle (Blc. Fortune x C. Horace) is a standard sized plant with bulbs 18” tall, and plants require a 7-8” pot to at maturity.  Flowers are large, over 6” across, and held well on strong stems in groups of 3 and 4. As the name indicates, the cultivar 'Lemon Chiffon' is yellow and has excellent shape, with wide petals, and the lip is also yellow with a bright red spot. For years, this Goldenzelle has been considered one of the top standard yellow Cattleyas ever produced.  Little Toshie (Blc. Toshie Aoki x Sc. Beaufort) is a remarkable hybrid.  It flowers 2-3 times a year, and each flowering produces excellent quality bright yellow flowers with red lips.  Plants are only 6” tall and have a nice, tidy growth habit. This is an excellent breeding plant that imparts good flower color and shape. This cross will give us nice-sized flowers 4-5” across.  The petals will be wide, and plants will mature at 8-10” tall. Flowers will be mostly yellow, with red lips, but some will have a red blush.  I am very optimistic about the potential here.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Burana Fire 'SVO' HCC/AOS x Lc. Tropical Aurora 'SVO')

I really like bold colored flowers with exotic flaring. Burana Fire (Pot. Burana Beauty x Slc. Fire Fantasy) has outrageous color: the blooms are mostly yellow with red picotees and overlays, and each stem holds 4-5 flowers above the foliage. I think Tropical Aurora (Lc. Aussie Sunset x Lc. Tokyo Magic) is a special plant with considerable potential. Flowers are a pure, very bright yellow - the most intense yellow imaginable – with a contrasting red lip. It is interesting that the red flaring of Aussie Sunset is not expressed in Tropical Sunset, but the genes are there.  I believe these will bloom with excellent red flares on yellow flowers, and the strong stems will do a good job of displaying the 5-7 flowers. Plants will be robust and compact in their growth habit.   This cross is also available as a reciprocal (SVO 7087).  Reciprocal crosses offer the opportunity to evaluate the difference in influence of capsule vs. pollen parent. If you've ever wondered about these differences, here is a great opportunity to see for yourself.

Slc. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Tropical Aurora 'SVO' x Slc. Wasp Nest 'Red Red' HCC/AOS)

I think Tropical Aurora (Lc. Aussie Sunset x Lc. Tokyo Magic) is a special plant with considerable potential. The flowers are a pure, very bright yellow - the most intense yellow imaginable - and the lip is a contrasting red. Wasp Nest (Slc. Tangerine Jewel x Lc. Trick or Treat) has 8-10 solid red flowers.  This cross resembles an earlier cross named Slc. Granata Sunrise (Lc. Tokyo Magic x Wasp Nest), which was successful in producing many good-quality flowers on great stems.  By using Tropical Aurora I expect improved flower color in bright sunset shades.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Martha Clarke 'Amazing' x Lc. Tropical Aurora 'SVO')

My wife's namesake, Martha Clarke (Blc. Love Sound x Slc. Circle of Life), has been a successful hybrid.  Compact plants produce flowers with great color and excellent shape.   Tropical Aurora (Lc. Aussie Sunset x Lc. Tokyo Magic) is a special plant with great potential. The flowers are a pure, very bright yellow - the most intense yellow imaginable - and the lip is a contrasting red. These will be well-shaped flowers held high, and their color will be variable across a wide range of sunset tones.  Every one will be interesting.

Pot. Spring Prominence (Pot. Hawaiian Prominence 'America' AM/AOS x Lc. Spring Fires 'Lenette #1')

One of our long-term breeding goals is the development of plants with strong inflorescences holding heads of well-shaped red flowers.  This cross incorporates parents with key traits towards this goal.  The intense purple-red color and bright yellow throat of Hawaiian Prominence (Hisako Akatsuka x Slc. Wendy's Redstone) commands attention, and its well-shaped flowers are displayed nicely on strong stems. Spring Fires (Lc. Fires of Spring x Lc. Fire Island) has strong upright stems carrying 5-9 red flowers with darker red lips.  It has proven to be an excellent parent, with dominance for color, a sturdy inflorescence, and bloom period.  The same cross is available as SVO 7001 (apparently, I really wanted to make this), and the reciprocal is also available as SVO 7115.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Tokyo Magic '6-1' AM/AOS x Pot. Martha Clarke 'Amazing')

Tokyo Magic (Lc. Irene Finney x L. briegeri) is a proven breeder that has given rise to many exceptional hybrids.  It imparts good flower shape, red lip color, sturdy stems and a compact upright plant habit. Martha Clarke (Blc. Love Sound x Slc. Circle of Life) was named for my wife and has been a successful hybrid.  Compact plants produce flowers with great color and excellent shape. I'm intrigued by this type of breeding, which has the potential to produce well-displayed, attractive flowers of excellent shape in a range of yellows, some with petals tipped in red and all with red lips.

Lc. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Tropical Sunset 'Oceans Heaven' x Lc. Tokyo Magic '6-1' AM/AOS)

Here is one to consider. Tropical Sunset (C. Horace x Tropic Glow) has large orange flowers with full, dark red lips, well presented on a strong inflorescence.  Simply put, this is an excellent hybrid! Tokyo Magic (Lc. Irene Finney x L. briegeri) is a proven breeder that has given rise to many exceptional hybrids.  It imparts good flower shape, red lip color, sturdy stems and a compact upright plant habit.  This is a very promising cross for big orange flowers with bright red contrasting lips.  The blooms will be held high and well presented, and the plants will be compact.  A lot of good qualities are coming together here.

Blc. NEW HYBRID (Blc. Fordyce Fantasy 'SVO Winter Splash' x Lc. Tokyo Magic '6-1' AM/AOS)

The late Frank Fordyce developed the hybrid Fordyce Fantasy (Blc. Horizon Flight x C. aurantiaca).  This is a surprisingly nice cross, with robust plants bearing flowers with orange sepals and yellow petals sporting red picotees and flares.  Tokyo Magic (Lc. Irene Finney x L. briegeri) is a proven breeder that has given rise to many exceptional hybrids.  It imparts good flower shape, red lip color, sturdy stems and a compact upright plant habit.  Here we are developing a hybrid with flowers showing good yellow color and many having red flares. A strong inflorescence will hold the 5-7 flowers nicely above the foliage. The inspiration for this cross came from an earlier hybrid, Blc. Fantasy Love, which is similar in many regards and quite nice.  It is offered below as SVO 7108. A nice quality with this cross is that it will bloom in April, perfect timing for later show dates.

Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) 'OPRL' stands for Orange Petals Red Lip. It is one of my most reliable breeding plants, imparting good flower size, shape and color.  It also flowers two or three times a year. Tropical Aurora (Lc. Aussie Sunset x Lc. Tokyo Magic) has great potential. Flowers are a pure, very bright yellow - the most intense yellow imaginable – with a contrasting red lip.  How about bright golden orange flowers with bright red lips of excellent shape?  Sound good?  This cross should deliver the breeding objective.

I am reminded each spring how beautiful the flowers are of Fantasy Love 'SVO'.  Check out the Picture 1773  I just had to make this wonderful cross available again.  Fordyce Fantasy (Blc. Horizon Flight x C. aurantiaca) is a surprisingly nice cross, with robust plants carrying flowers having orange sepals and yellow petals with red picotees and flares. Love Sound is a proven and valuable breeder, which is dominant for yellow color, flowers shape, stem and compact plant habit. This cross makes excellent yellow flowers exhibiting petals with light rose/red picotees and blushes.

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

Kaboom (Blc. Schroeder's Love x Blc. Guess What) is an excellent hybrid.  The strong stems hold 5-7 pure yellow flowers of excellent shape and carriage.  We have chosen to cross Kaboom back to its parent Guess What (Blc. Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat), a type of line breeding.  One nice quality of Guess What is amazing flower longevity, with blooms typically lasting 8-10 weeks!  Here we will see 5-7 golden yellow flowers, well-displayed with excellent arrangement on strong stems, and we expect flower longevity will be 2 months or longer. Should this be named Kaboom What?

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Sierra Gem 'SVO Red Fireball' HCC/AOS x Pot. Star Fire 'Xmas Red')

Here we are breeding for nice stems of 5-7 well-formed deep red flowers on a reduced-sized plant.  Sierra Gem (Slc. Hazel Boyd x Sl. Pole-Star) is a compact-growing plant with 5-6 bright red well-shaped, nicely-presented flowers.  Star Fire (Lc. Trick or Treat x Pot. Rubescence) blooms with 7 red flowers on good sturdy stems. The influence of Sierra Gem on this grex will be to hold plant size down to about 7” tall.  Star Fire will assure good flower size and flower count.  All in all, this is a very promising small-growing Cattleya that will have a great presentation of 5-7 red flowers.

Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) 'OPRL' stands for Orange Petals Red Lip. It is one of my most reliable breeding plants, imparting good flower size, shape and color.  It also flowers two or three times a year. Cosmic Delite (Slc. Bright Angel x Sc. Batemaniana) is a mini-catt with amazing flower color - yellow with a bold red overlay of red flaring.  The expectation here is for excellent flower shape, with many having red flaring.  There are fantastic color possibilities with this mini-catt. Here is a Picture  of the first to bloom - it's super cute!

Blc. NEW HYBRID (Blc. Kaboom 'SVO' x Blc. Love Sound 'Dogashima' AM/AOS)

Kaboom (Blc. Schroeder's Love x Blc.

Love Sound x C. schroederae). Two great qualities of Schroder's Love are large flower size and pastel colors.  Here we will see strong stems displaying 5-7 pastel yellow to pink flowers, not an easy color to achieve. Maybe we will name this cross Kaboom Sound.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. My Precious 'Valentine Gift' x Pot. Paradise Rose 'My Valentine')

My Precious (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Precious Katie) has a well-formed deep red flower with a darker burgundy lip.  Plants are compact and produce 3 well-held flowers per stem. Paradise Rose (Slc. Pink Doll x Blc. Toshie Aoki) has intense color and shows an interesting phenomenon of color dominance.  The flowers of Blc. Toshie Aoki show the influence from C. dowiana, with bright yellow flowers and red lips.  Like C. dowiana, the flowers of Toshie Aoki are recessive for color but intensify purple tones.  Pink Doll has dark purple flowers, and Paradise Rose combines these traits and produces intense crimson-red-purple flowers.  Both parents are compact growers, and these plants will mature at 6-7” tall and have 4” intense red flowers with burgundy red lips. These should flower twice a year and start blooming in 3” pots.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Lc. Angel Heart 'Hihimanu' AM/AOS x Pot. Martha Clarke 'Amazing')

This is a speculative cross, and the outcome is harder than usual to predict. Angel Heart (Lc. Puppy Love x C.  Penny Kuroda) has flowers that are a soft pastel pink with pink flaring.  It has strong stems that do a good job presenting the 5-7 large flowers above the foliage. Martha Clarke (Blc. Love Sound x Slc. Circle of Life) is a very successful hybrid.  Plants are compact and produce flowers with excellent shape and great color.  I believe these plants will produce flowers with good shape, held well on strong stems.  Flower color is going to be widely variable, ranging from soft pastel pinks to darker rose tones, but some yellow shades or reds could come from this cross.  There's even a possibility that unusual flaring will be present in many of the flowers. It will be fun to see how these turn out.

Lc. Jalapa (aka. Florence Lin) (C. leopoldii 'SVO Prince' 4n x L. milleri 'Dr. Koopowitz Red' HCC/AOS)

The first time we made Jalapa it was with a 2n leopoldii that blooms with up to 52 flowers on a single inflorescence.  The offspring were very floriferous, carrying 15-19 flowers per stem, and received several AOS awards.  The second time we made it, we used the two parents listed here, and what a difference that made in flower color, size and shape!  Not surprisingly, they sold out quickly.  Here we have re-used those same parents to re-make the re-make.  The flowers will be deep red with even darker burgundy spots and have excellent shape. This is a very desirable primary hybrid, a real must-have!

Lc. Shirayukihime (Lc. Mildred Rives 'Orchidglade' FCC/AOS x Lc. Tokyo Magic 'Hihimanu')

Semi-alba cattleyas show a beautiful color combination. Mildred Rives is a famous semi-alba with huge flowers of excellent shape on large standard-sized plants. Tokyo Magic has proven to be a valuable breeder and is dominant for flower shape, a strong stem, and compact plant habit.  Importantly, Tokyo Magic is not dominant for color, which should allow the semi-alba coloration from Mildred Rives to come through.  These compact plants will flower well in 4” pots with excellent flower presentation and the all-important semi-alba color.  Truly an excellent semi-alba compact cattleya cross.

Lc. NEW HYBRID (C. Little Dipper 'Sato' x Lc. Tropical Aurora 'SVO')

Little Dipper has sired a number of great hybrids, including Sacramento Splash, Dream Cloud, Nora's Melody, and Garrett Collins.  Little Dipper imparts flared petals that are wide and flat.  Tropical Aurora (Lc. Aussie Sunset x Lc. Tokyo Magic) has considerable potential. Flowers are a pure, very bright yellow - the most intense yellow imaginable – with a contrasting red lip, and 5-7 flowers are produced on strong upright stems.  Flowers will have great shape and be displayed on good stems. The flower color and flare color will be variable, making each plant unique, and we expect colors to range from yellow to cream; some may even be lavender.  A real potpourri of colors!

Dialc. NEW HYBRID (Dialc.  Ann's Snowflake 'SVO' x Lc. Hsinying Skies ' Ching Hua')

Years ago I made many hybrids with Diacrium bicornutum, now considered to be in the genus Caularthron.  The hybrids were easy growers and produced great stems of white to pink flowers that bloom in April and May.  Ann's Snowflake (Dial. Snowflake x Lc. Ann Akagi) is possibly the best of this breeding line.  The inflorescence is reminiscent of a Phalaenopsis with long arching stems that hold 12-15 well-spaced and well-arranged light pink flowers. Hsinying Skies (L. Puppy Love x Lc. Sierra Skies) has beautiful soft pink flowers of excellent shape, substance and presentation. This is a highly advanced Diacrium hybrid.  The flowers will be soft pink, well-shaped and beautifully presented on arching inflorescences, AND they will have excellent flower longevity of 6-8 weeks. Simply an excellent pairing.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Burana Angel 'SVO #1 Best' HCC/AOS x C. Chocolate Drop 'SVO' AM/AOS)

Flaring in cattleyas sometimes can be quite unusual.  In the case of Burana Angel (Pot. Burana Beauty x Slc. Bright Angel), we have a remarkable color combination: the red flowers have red flares, and the red lip has a bright yellow center. Crossing it with the waxy red flowers of Chocolate Drop will make this quite the novelty hybrid. The outcome is a bit difficult to predict, so there is some speculation on my part. The flowers will be a bit starry but fuller than Chocolate Drop, and the color will be red, but the texture could range from waxy to matte, the red lips may or may not have a yellow center, and flower count will be 7 or more. Only time will tell.

Lc. Miss Wonderful (Lc. Mari's Song 'CTM 217' HCC/AOS x L. anceps f. petaloid 'Jody')

Miss Wonderful has been a fantastic hybrid!  We've made it on 4-5 separate occasions with different parents, and every time the results have been excellent.  These are strong-growing plants and easy to bloom, with large flowers having excellent flares on 12 to 18” long inflorescences. This is a particularly intriguing cross. The use of L. anceps forma petaloid is expected to increase petal width and modify lip shape in ways not seen before. This has potential to produce truly unique Miss Wonderful offspring - the best of these will be unbelievable. I have tried to make this exact cross twice before with no luck.  Don't miss this one!

Dialc. NEW HYBRID (Dialc. Mizoguchi 'SVO' AM/AOS x L. anceps 'White Marble')

Mizoguchi (Dial. Snowflake x L. anceps) has long anceps-like stems with 10 well-spaced and nicely-arranged light pink flowers. Crossing it back to anceps 'White Marble' will increase flower size and produce mostly white flowers with dark veins in the throat of the lip. Flowers will be held well on arching inflorescences, but the number will be reduced to 5-7.  This is going to look like a high flower count L. anceps on a tidier and more compact plant.
3” pots $14

SVO 7358
Eplc. NEW HYBRID (Epc. Kyoguchi 'Peter's Pick' x Lc. Florence Lin 'Diamond Orchids' AM/AOS)

This is a great novelty hybrid.  Kyoguchi (Enc. aromatica x Gur. aurantiaca) has branched inflorescences bearing many yellow flowers that are highly fragrant.  Florence Lin (C. tigrina x L. milleri) has dark red flowers and a crimson-red lip; it can hold up to 19 flowers on a single stem!  These will have many red to orange flowers, and although it's hard to predict fragrance, I expect there to be a notable amount. These will be easy to grow and bloom, and should make nice specimen plants.
