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.

SVO 7640     
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 7198; you know it must be nice if I made it twice!

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

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. Mark Jones (C. Caudebec x C. Fascelis) has a full-shaped flower, carried 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.  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 7717.

Bc. NEW HYBRID (Bc. Maikai 'Lea' AM/AOS x C. Caudebec 4n 'Linwood' AM/AOS)

Maikai (B. nodosa x C. bowringiana) has starry-shaped deep rose-lavender flowers with faint spots, and the round lip is rose-lavender and spotted. 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 spots and a magenta lip. The strong stems carry 9 flowers each.  We expect impressive clusters of bright magenta flowers, possibly with some spots, and a dark magenta lip spotted with even darker magenta.

C. NEW HYBRID (C. Leoloddiglossa 'SVO Speckled Blue' FCC/AOS x C. Gaudii 'SVO Blue Spots')

Leoloddiglossa 'SVO Speckled Blue' has excellent shape and coerulea color, and it carries 20 or more well-presented flowers. There are three Cattleya species represented here: leopoldii, loddigesii, and amethystoglossa. Crossing this exceptional plant with Gaudii (leopoldii x loddigesii) will reinforce the traits from the parent species, making these look a lot like super Gaudii with larger flowers showing deep color and darker spots.

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

The best possible parents were used in this cross. Most of us have seen Landate (C. leopoldii x C. aclandiae) and Peckaviensis (C. aclandiae x C. schilleriana), which bloom with 3-5 very showy and fragrant flowers. However, Mareeba Tiger combines the high flower count from C. leopoldii (15-25) with the 5-7 blooms of C. schilleriana. I believe these will bloom with 9-15 huge 5” flowers. Blooms will be nicely fragrant and dark chestnut brown with darker spotting and a broad intense magenta lip. Like a super floriferous schilleriana! Here is your chance to get something really great.

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

Very similar to SVO 7945, but here we use a sibling 4n leopoldii. C. Mareeba Tiger combines the high flower count from C. leopoldii (15-25) with the 5-7 blooms of C. schilleriana. I believe these will bloom with 9-15 huge 5” flowers. Blooms will be nicely fragrant and dark chestnut brown with darker spotting and a broad intense magenta lip. Like a super floriferous schilleriana!  Here is your chance to get something great.

C. Aurora's Newyears Gift (C. leopoldii 'Paul' AM/AOS x C. granulosa 'SVO Dark')

Similar to SVO 7944. This leopoldii receiving an AM/AOS says a lot about its flower quality. Flowers are a rich bronze with burgundy spots and fuchsia lips. This granulosa has very large, dark-colored flowers with waxy substance. Really exceptional! If you want something very special and/or you are a fan of bifoliate Cattleyas, you cannot pass this up.

Slc. NEW HBYRID (Slc. Angel Eyes 'SVO' AM/AOS x C. Caudebec 'Marty's Orchids' 4n)

Recently I have come to realize how valuable Angel Eyes (Slc. Bright Angel x Lc. Little Dipper) is as a parent. It reliably breeds desirable, flat, flared flowers and blooms several times a year. Caudebec (C. Sophia Martin x C. Penny Kuroda) 'Marty's Orchids' is a meristem mutation and superior to other cultivars, with hard substance, pink flowers and amethyst-pink spots. These will have pink flowers with amethyst-pink spots on the sepals and pink-lavender flaring on the petals, all surrounding a fuchsia lip. This is a very novel cross and well worth the investment.
