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!

A word about kingies that produce an abundance of keikis:  The keikis are easy to propagate and are often widely distributed among hobbyists. There's just one problem: they usually don't flower well….. do you have one like that?   This grex will flower well with dark flowers, shapely blooms, on compact plants.  Time to upgrade!   First to bloom plant, only 18 months from flask.

Sunset Valley Orchids 2014-15 Sarcochilus list

Sarcochilus are native to Australia and have been grown there for many years; occasionally we see a few plants here is the USA, they generally are the old fashion type with white flowers and a red spot in the center.  With my visits to Australia sourcing Aussie Dendrobiums, I came across several Sarcochilus breeders who are doing a magnificent job breeding for “high color” Sarcochilus.  Their efforts are focused on developing flower colors in:  pinks, reds, yellows, salmon, and purples.  I have carefully selected these hybrids that appear to be most promising with good color, quick to bloom, compact plants, and charming aspect.   This is the first significant offering in the USA of the “modern high color” Sarcochilus breeding from Australia.  

Here are the basic requirements for moisture, temperature and light needed for good culture. Sarcochilus need to be watered in a way to keep the medium slightly moist.  They don’t have pseudobulbs to store water so it’s the leaves and roots that are responsible for this function.  I water them every 2-3 days in summer and once a week in winter.  Sarcochilus need a well drained potting medium as watering will be frequent; I have found medium orchid bark to be ideal. The summer temperatures should range from 75-85 degrees during the day and 60-70 degrees at night with winter temperatures from 60-75 degree days and 45-55 degree nights. The plants prefer light levels of 1500 to 2000 foot candles (fc).  In hot humid conditions the plants benefit from increased shading, air movement and watering, as this helps keep the foliage cool.

Sarcochilus generally flower in late April and early May; I am always reminded that Mother’s day is not far off when I see the first blooms.    

 

SVO 5479
Sarc. Fiery Glow 'Red Gem' x Sarc. (Sweetheart x Fitzhart) 'Spectacular' 

Ok, so I did make one Sarcochilus hybrid for this year.  I just could not resist!  Both of these are considered the best Sarcs. in my collection.  The Firey Glow (Bernice Klein x Zoe) is just fantastic. It’s amazing red color with darker red blotches and beautiful shape is truly exceptional.  The other parent is equally nice with amazing color and shape.  The cross is also showing excellent plant vigor.

Sarc. Kulnura Dazzel 'Big Purple' x Sarc. Fiery Glow 'Purple Star'

Fiery Glow brings the advantage of longer, more floriferous spikes. Here we see it in combination with the prolifically spiking Kulnura Dazzel. These will be purple spotted over a white background. Some will be solid purple and very attractive.

Sarc. Bunyip 'PRC' x Sarc. Kulnura Dew Drop 'Red n Pink'

This color combination is one of my favorites. The flowers have softer pink on the outer ends of the segments with deep red/pink in the center. With Bunyip as a parent we always see an improvement in flower quality, and this cross should be no exception. There will be award quality flowers from this mating.

Sarc. Zoe 'Splash Out' x Sarc. Kulnura Dazzel 'Clear Spots'

Zoe is one of the older parents, but it provides its offspring with vigor of growth. It is important when breeding to emphasize ease of growth, and this parent accomplishes that well. It also brings a multi spiking habit to its hybrids. With Kulnura Dazzel, we are looking at productive, open-shaped flowers in the "spots and pattern" color grouping, and this parent also will favor more upright spikes.

Sarc. Kulnura Firemist (Sarc. Bunyip 'Big Edge'  x Sarc. Zoe 'Pink Edge')

The original cross of Kulnura Firemist was made for patterning, but this remake is aimed toward segments with red edging. This is a very attractive and desirable combination, but will only be present in a small percentage of the progeny. The plants will be very vigorous growers and will flower profusely.

A093 
Sarc. Rebecca 'Crimson Gem' x Sarc. Kulnura Intensity 'Crimson Velvet'

Sensationally intense reds! Both parents have an upright spike habit and show multi spike potential. Rebecca also carries albino genes, but I am not expecting those to be expressed here. Finer foliage will be present in this hybrid.

A110 
Sarc. Heidi 'Early' x Sarc. Zoe 'SB'

Most Sarcs flower in the late spring, missing many of the bigger shows. One breeding objective is to bring the flowering period forward. There are two ways of doing this. One is to introduce some of the smaller species, which are difficult to grow. The other is to use early-flowering hartmannii. This Heidi flowers in early to mid-spring and should confer that timing to its offspring. In this first generation I expect mostly white flowers, but a few will have some red to pink color.  It will be nice to see Sarcochilus blooming in late March and early April.

A111 
Sarc. Kulnura Dazzel 'Clear Dots' x Sarc. Kulnura Dazzel 'Sarah'

The Kulnura Dazzel cross has been one of our most successful matings in the intense purple to bold spotting range. While they don’t have the spike length of some other hybrids, they are extremely free flowering and have straight upright spikes. This cross is focused toward boldly spotted flowers. Expect a high percentage of spots, with some solid purple tones.

A116 
Sarc. Galaxy 'Ray' x Sarc. hartmannii 'Gold Spot' 

This cross brings the two yellow styles together. Galaxy has the creamy yellow with red flecks in the segments while the hartmannii has albino yellow center.  The result will be creamy yellows with varying degrees of light red in the segments however a few will be soft yellows though out. When mature these plants will produce flowers throughout the year as well as main flowering in spring.
