C. Mrs. Mahler 'Memoria Fred Tompkins' AM/AOS x C. Chocolate Drop 'SVO' AM/AOS
C. Mrs Mahler 'Mem. Fred Tompkins' AM/AOS is an awarded bifoliate primary hybrid between C. bicolor and C. leopoldii. It has a very large stature with strong inflorescences with a cloud of nice-sized, heavily-spotted deep mahogany-colored flowers and a saturated fuchsia lip. C. Chocolate Drop 'SVO' AM/AOS is another awarded primary hybrid using C. leopoldii crossed with C. aurantiaca. The inflorescences are covered in a mass of very glossy, waxy textured flowers that are a deep reddish-chocolate color with a red lip. With this hybrid, we expect to see very robust plants with upright inflorescences with a multitude of richly-colored, heavy-textured flowers. What a show this hybrid should be at maturity!
