ENC odoratissima x ENC aromatica
We made this primary encyclia hybrid for two reasons. One – hopefully the plant should produce extremely fragrant flowers and two – for its floriferousness. Both species are some of the first encyclias to bloom late winter/spring. Hopefully we will have tons of flowers on heavily branched spikes while maintaining the tendency to bloom just above the foliage on the fairly compact plants. The flowers will be in the green to a brick color – not necessarily the most flashy but certainly should be a very nice hybrid particularly for under light or windowsill growers.

L Pulcherrima
(L lobata 'Jeni' AM/AOS x L purpurata v. mandaiana 'Schmidt')
This is a re-make of a primary hybrid between two Brazilian species that was originally made in 1898. The flowers are slightly smaller than the Laelia purpurata but have a much better shape and seem to last considerably longer than Laelia purpurata. The lobata 'Jeni' has been a hybridizers enigma with unpredictable results but with this hybrid, many have been coming out with an almost semi-alba flowers similar to our gallery picture of one of our first bloomed from this cross. The lightest shell pink can be further muted if this plant can be moved to lower light conditions while the flower buds mature. A very nice primary hybrid.

L sincorana 'Jewell's' x C maxima 'Leave Me Alone'
This is one of our own hybrids we made. This cross features compact plants, similar in growth to L. sincorana. The large 5” flowers exhibit a uniquely striped lip, which is a characteristic in both parents. The flower picture is one of our first bloomed seedlings.

LC Canhamiana
(L purpurata v manderiana ‘Schmitt’ x C mossiae v coerulea ‘Alayon’)
is our hybrid between two unique light-colored forms of the parents. The plants have been vigorous growers in and out of flask and should produce large flowers of satin pinks--Very different from the common form of this hybrid.
4", $16

LC Dorothy Fiene ‘Spring Fever’ x LC Okarchee ‘Addison’
Many fall blooming lavenders exist so we thought there should be more spring blooming lavenders so we made this cross. ‘Spring Fever’ blooms very early and the Okarchee in late spring so we should have a range of large blooming lavenders across the spring show season. We expect 3-4 seven inch flowers, hopefully with the yellow throat and all with great cattleya fragrance.

LC Kaizu Comfort 'Jewell's' X L dayana 'Lip Service'
LC Kaizu Comfort is a primary hybrid between Cattleya intermedia alba and Laelia bradi alba but has flowers blooming out pink or blue depending on the night temperatures, cooler nights favor the blue color. Laelia dayana ‘Lip Service’, a semi-alba, is from a selfing of Laelia dayana coerulea and also can bloom bluer with lower night temperatures. We expect a range of colors with these seedlings … anywhere from semi-alba to interesting blues. Plants should stay compact and range from 6 to 8” tall.

At maturity will have clusters of a dozen or more 3” flowers. The flower pictures are from our first-bloomed seedlings. We do expect some variability.

is an older clone of an older equitant oncidium that was registered in 1978 by Richella, one of the leading breeders of that day. The large classic flowers feature a near solid canary yellow with a light dusting of red spots around the column and crest area. Good yellows have been very hard to find in modern equitant breeding
