LC. Mini Blue Star
(LC. Mini Purple var. coerulea 4N x LC. Cornelia var. coerulea 'Floralia')
LC. Mini Purple is a primary hybrid between the coerulea forms of C. walkeriana and L. pumila. It produces fantastic small plant with relatively large (approximately 3-4”) blue flowers with a darker lip. It bloom a couple times a year and makes a great windowsill grower since the plant reaches only 6-8” tall. LC. Cornelia is a classic primary hybrid between the coerulea forms of C. labiata and L. pumila. The plant is very compact with a relatively large blue flower with a darker blue lip and yellow throat. We expect to see offspring to have a nice compact plant with large blue flowers with a deeper blue lip.
