2014/15 Australian Dendrobium and Sarcochilus list

Australian Dendrobiums are bred with species that originate in Australia.  The Aussies have done an amazing job in the breeding of their native Dens and have made significant improvements; they are very popular in Australia. 

Here in the USA we rarely see the advanced hybrids for sale.  We do see D. kingianum, and anyone who grows it knows how robust they are.  The Aussie Dendrobiums are all very hardy.  They do well with hot summers (75-95 deg. days) and cool winters (40-55 deg. nights).  I have been trialing them all over the USA and have had customers report good successes in Florida, Virginia, New York, Michigan, Oklahoma, and California.  The flowers are fragrant and will fill the growing area with a wonderful aroma.  Most importantly they re-flower from the old pseudobulbs, which allows for an outstanding floral display. I have seen plants produce 12 inflorescences from a single bulb over a 5 year period; now THAT is a nice feature!  This re-flowering characteristic makes for plants that form beautiful specimens in a relatively short period of time.

Sunset Valley Orchids is the leading hybridizer of Aussie Dens in the USA.  We have been sourcing plant material for many years and have developed a superior collection of breeding stock.  This season we have been focused on breeding yellow flowers with red markings, a highly desirable color form.

Here is the first significant offering in the USA of what our friends in Australia have worked on so diligently.   Give them a try - we think that you'll be impressed!

 

Australian Dendrobiums

SVO 5040       
Den. Gillieston Jazz 'Steven' x Den. Victorian Bride 'Genesis'

Gillieston Jazz has the best deep purple-red flowers. In Australia they say the color is "beet root" - an amazing color for an Aussie Den.  The plant is also very compact and free flowering. Victorian Bride has a 'chunky' flower with a white background color and dark purple markings.  Here we are expecting dark purple-red flowers on multiple upright spikes per bulb. Very showy.

[Den. Peewee x (Den. Yondi Glow x Den. Yondi Brolga)] 'SVO' x Den. speciosum v. curvicaule 'Daylight Moon' FCC/AOC

This unregistered hybrid is getting pretty complicated….but click on the link to see the picture of the flowers. Very impressive in shape and color, it also has good flower production on a compact plant.  The 'Daylight Moon' is the best curvicaule and flowers with over 100 chunky light yellow blooms per inflorescence.  Remember, although speciosum is in the immediate background, it will not add much to the plant size, as this is a recessive trait.   Expect the color to come through and improved flower count and size.   Very nice.
