Laelia anceps var. roeblingiana ‘La Jolla’ HCC/AOS x sib var. disciplinata
Laelia anceps is a really wonderful species with many different color forms. This is a cross between two rare and unique forms. The roeblingiana form (specifically the awarded ‘La Jolla’ clone used in this cross) has light lavender sepals and a deep magenta lip with a yellow toward the throat with gorgeous veining; however, the most appealing aspect of this flower is the “peloric” petals that are a deep magenta color with very unique markings. The disciplinata form has lavender flowers with fuchsia striations in the petals. The resulting line-breeding should produce really uncommon flares/striations on the petals. The flowers we have seen bloom from this crossing are true to our expectations and make for some of the most unique L. anceps varieties we have come across.
