LC. Jalapa 'Ruben's Pick' 4N x C. Bactia 'Grape Wax'
LC. Jalapa is a primary hybrid between C. leopoldii and L. milleri that produces upright inflorescences with many heavy-textured red flowers with dark maroon spots. C. Bactia is a primary hybrid between C. bowringiana and C. guttata. It is a tall upright plant that produces clouds of saturated purple flowers. We are really looking forward to seeing the offspring from this cross and anticipate strong, upright plants with clouds of waxy flowers of vivid red/purple!
(About 1-2 years from blooming size.)
