Spotted Cattleyas

Spotted flowers have been a favorite of mine for years. Seeing those wonderful spots in the heat of summer is a spectacular sight. Today the development of spotted breeding includes flowers that bloom in a wide range of color choices.  SVO is renowned for its breeding of yellow flowers with red spots and the new line of spotted coerulea flower crosses are not to be missed.

C. Peckaviensis (C. schilleriana 'Afri' SM/JOGA x C. aclandiae 'Kathleen II' 4n AM/AOS)

What a great primary hybrid! These look like huge aclandiae with large oversized lips and 3-4 flowers per stem.  As 'Afri' is most likely a 4n and 'Kathleen' is a 4n, we expect flowers to have heavier substance and larger size compared to previous 2n crosses.  Excellent in baskets and on mounts, these are not to be missed. This is the exact same cross as SVO 7640.

C. Mareeba Tiger (C. leopoldii 'SVO Dark Wonder 4n' x C. schilleriana 'Yes 4n')

If you are going to remake a primary cross, it only makes sense to use the best parental stock available. The quality of 'SVO Dark Wonder' is fantastic: heavy, hard flowers with wide segments and dark red lips. The schilleriana is also outstanding, with large flowers, each sporting a wide, flat red lip. This promises to be an exceptional hybrid, blooming with 5-7 flowers and looking a lot like an improved leopoldii in flower and lip size. I'm already thinking about crossing the best of these with C. Peckaviensis – wouldn't that be awesome?!

C. NEW HYBRID (C. Brabantiae 'SVO 7' 4n x C. Love Chance Green, White Lip 4n)

This Brabantiae (C. aclandiae x C. loddigesii) carries 8 hot pink flowers boldly spotted in dark burgundy and held nicely above the foliage. C. Love Chance (C. Landate x C. loddigesii) is normally a spotted hybrid, but 'Green White Lip', true to its name, has a green flower with a white lip. The plant has a compact stature, standing at 12” tall with flowers of “rock hard” substance.  Here we are looking for pink flowers, spotted in dark burgundy and with impressively hard substance, presented nicely just above the foliage on sturdy stems.

Lc. Chuzca Real (C. Peckaviensis 'Red Spade' HCC/AOS x C. leopoldii 'SVO No Spots' AM/AOS)

Peckaviensis flowers look like huge aclandiae blooms with large oversized lips and 3-4 flowers per stem. The unusual and rare color form of leopoldii, 'SVO No Spots', blooms with 15 well-arranged, dark amber flowers and bright magenta lips. Flower color is going to vary, with most being spotted in dark burgundy, but some will come out in solid amber colors. One thing is certain - these will all have large, bright magenta lips and 6-9 flowers per stem - impressive!

Slc. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Memoria Evelyn Paquette 'SVO Hot Spots' x C. Penny Kuroda 'Spots' AM/AOS)

Memoria Evelyn Paquette (Slc. Armonía de Sueños x Lc. Mark Jones) 'SVO Hot Spots' has excellent shape, color and a broad, flat magenta lip. Penny Kuroda 'Spots' has been around since the mid 1980's and has played an important role in breeding spotted flowers. Its strong stems hold 14-17 white flowers spotted in pink with a peloric pink splash and a dark magenta lip. Due to the peloric nature of Penny Kuroda, we expect about half of the offspring to have peloric flowers.  'SVO Hot Spots' will add color and keep the plant stature compact. This cross has good potential to produce a new color combination: yellow petals and sepals with burgundy spots, magenta peloric splashes on the petals, and magenta lips. Very cool!

C. NEW HYBRID (C. Leoloddiglossa 'SVO Speckled Blue' FCC/AOS x C. Little Leopard 'Nite Shade')

Leoloddiglossa has been a remarkable hybrid. It is the first highly successful coerulea (blue) flower with darker coerulea spots!!! The lineage of Leoloddiglossa contains three Cattleya species: leopoldii, loddigesii, and amethystoglossa, thus the name: Leoloddiglossa (leo-loddi-glossa). 'SVO Speckled Blue' has excellent shape and color, carrying 20 or more well-presented flowers. Receiving an FCC/AOS is the highest accolade a flower can get! Little Leopard (C. aclandiae x C. amethystoglossa) is quite a distinctive flower, and 'Nite Shade' is the only coerulea cultivar from of this cross that I am aware. The flower is spotted, and the lip is coerulea, as is the column. This is our first hybrid with Little Leopard, and we expect it will significantly reduce the plant size and pass along the coerulea spots and color. Some will have coerulea-colored columns as well. A compact blue spotted Cattleya! Available with oryzalin treatment as SVO 7559t.

Pot. NEW HYBRID (Pot. Naomi's Delight 'SVO Orange' x Slc. Kathleen Clarkson 'SVO' HCC/AOS)

The orange-spotted burgundy Naomi's Delight (Slc. Katherine Clarkson x Blc. Sun Spots) was a nice surprise, with beautiful orange flower color and great shape on a compact plant. By crossing it back to its parent Katherine Clarkson (C. Mark Jones x Slc. Jungle Gem), we double up on all the good qualities of flower color and form, producing short plants that stand just 8” tall. This is a very promising cross for well-formed yellow and possibly some orange flowers with red spots on near-mini plants.

C. Mark Jones (C. Mark Jones 'SVO' HCC/AOS x C. Mark Jones 'Carmel' AM/AOS)

The hybrid Mark Jones (C. Caudebec x C. Fascelis) was made by Frank Smith of Krull-Smith Orchids and registered by him in 2000. It has been an outstanding grex, with 8 AOS awards to date, and has also parented 29 registered hybrids that have earned 27 AOS awards. What a great orchid! This sibling cross brings together the extraordinarily high bloom count of 'Carmel', which carries 11 flowers, and the beautifully-shaped flowers of 'SVO'. It's been 20 years since this cross was first introduced, and its flower qualities still hold up to today's standards. Here is an opportunity to acquire a line bred plant of this modern classic.

C. NEW HYBRID (C. Princesse Clémentine 'SVO' AM/AOS x C. Mark Jones 'SVO' HCC/AOS)

What a cross this is! Princesse Clémentine (C. aclandiae x C. dowiana) blooms with large 5-inch flowers in burnt-orange, finely spotted with light magenta, and a broad light magenta lip. The strong, erect inflorescence holds 5 symmetrically-arranged flowers. Wow, and a bit unexpected, to say the least. Mark Jones (C. Caudebec x C. Fascelis) has beautifully-shaped spotted flowers and is a successful breeder, passing along spots, shape and flower count.  From Princesse Clémentine it is expected that flower size will increase, and Mark Jones will add spots and round shape. I expect these flowers will be nicely fragrant, too.  This is one of those “very interesting” hybrids. A bit variable in flower color, but some will be great!

C. NEW HYBRID (C. Peckaviensis 'Red Spade' HCC/AOS x C. velutina 'SVO 24')

How cool are velutina hybrids? Peckaviensis (aclandiae x schilleriana) is a great primary hybrid, Flowers look like huge aclandiae with large oversized lips and 3-4 flowers per stem. C. velutina 'SVO 24' is named for its ability to flower with 24 blooms per stem. Flowers have undulated segments and are bronze-yellow with random burgundy spots, and the wide lip is veined in dark purple. The shape and colors make this unusual species spectacular. For this new hybrid, imagine 6-8 flowers just above the foliage in a golden-orange, spotted burgundy with broad magenta lips.

Slc. NEW HYBRID (Slc. Katherine Clarkson 'Diamond Orchids' HCC/AOS x C. velutina 'SVO 24')

Katherine Clarkson (C. Mark Jones x Slc. Jungle Gem) was the first grex with really nice, large flat yellow flowers with bold red spots on a compact plant. This groundbreaking hybrid even blooms twice a year! C. velutina 'SVO 24' is named for its ability to flower with 24 blooms per stem. Flowers have undulated segments and are bronze-yellow with random burgundy spots, and the wide lip is veined in dark purple. High flower count in yellow/spotted red breeding is a worthy goal, as most hybrids produce just 3-8 flowers per stem. We are hoping the high flower count from velutina will play a favorable role in this new grex. We expect that mature plants will be compact at 8-10” tall, and the flowers will be yellow/gold with red spots on sturdy stems displaying 8-10 blooms above the foliage.

C. NEW HYBRID (C. Mark Jones 'Lance' x C. Caudebec 4n 'Linwood' AM/AOS)

Mark Jones (C. Caudebec x C. Fascelis) has a full-shaped flower, carrying 7-9 per stem. It has surprisingly wide petals and olive-green color with dark amethyst spots and a broad red lip. These bloom in the summer, a time when not many Cattleyas flower.  Caudebec (C. Sophia Martin x C. Penny Kuroda) 'Linwood' is a meristem mutation and superior to other cultivars. It blooms with large, light pink flowers with dark pink spot and a magenta lip, and the strong stems carry 9 flowers each.  Plants will mature at 14-16” tall, have wider petals than most spotted hybrids, and produce 7-9 flowers per stem. A nice step forward in breeding for full-shaped flowers with wide, spotted petals. Here we have the rare opportunity to evaluate the influence of capsule vs. pollen parent, since the reciprocal is available as SVO 7673A.

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 bloom with strong stems of 9-11 flowers in a beautiful shade of coerulea blue with darker spotting. I expect similarly excellent results from this remake.

Memoria Evelyn Paquette (Slc. Armonía de Sueños x C. Mark Jones) waxy yellow flowers with red spotting and fuchsia lips. Plants have good stems with 4-5 flowers. With our understanding of flared flower breeding dominance, we can predict with good certainty that these flowers will have red spotted sepals and red flared petals.

Caudebec (C. Sophia Martin x C.
