This is a remake of a natural hybrid utilizing Cattleya warscewiczii ‘Frau Melanie Beyrodt’ and Cattleya dowiana var. rosita. The warscewiczii clone is a highly awarded semi-alba which breeding leads to mostly semi-alba flowers. Instead of the normal form of Cattleya dowiana, the rosita form has been used. Hopefully we will see semi-albas with red veining and/or pink blushes on the petals. The flower picture is of a Cattleya Hardyana semi-alba made with a Cattleya dowiana normal form.

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.

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.
