Blc. New Hybrid (Blc. Izumi Charm 'SVO' AM/AOS x Blc. Guess What 'SVO' AM/AOS)

Izumi Charm (Blc. Love Sound x Lc. Melody Fair) is a larger plant, standing 14” tall.  It has a compact growth habit with strong stems carrying 5 to 7 well-shaped, light yellow flowers with bright crimson red lips.  Here, this parent is combined with the vibrant orange yellow flower of Guess What (Blc. Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat), with its clusters of 8-9 flowers; this is one of my favorite spring bloomers.  The expectation is for self supporting stems with large flowers in clusters of golden-yellow with contrasting red lips. I am very interested in seeing the results of this cross; these should be show stoppers in March!

Pot. Mem. Marcia Dell (Lc. Tokyo Magic '6-1' AM/AOS x Pot. Love Passion 'Island Romance')

Tokyo Magic (Lc. Irene Finney x L. briegeri) is a proven breeder with many exceptional hybrids to its credit.  It imparts good flower shape, red lip color, strong stems and a compact upright plant habit.  Love Passion (Lc. Trick or Treat x Slc. William Farrell) has a true orange flower with a touch of red in the lip.  The strong stem carries 7 to 9 blooms above the foliage.  This cross produces robust plants with nice-sized flowers in orange to gold, many with a touch of red in the lip. Picture of one of the first to bloom.

C. Poseidon Lake (C. Leoloddiglossa 'Blue Sky' x C. bicolor 'SVO Blue')

How do you make Leoloddiglossa (Loddiglossa x leopoldii) better?  Add bicolor!  The broad bicolor lip will improve the lip width of the progeny.  I expect the flowers to be similar in color, shape and number to Leoloddiglossa, but much wider lips will give a fullness not previously seen.  This is very nice, unique hybrid, and a first in spotted Cattleya breeding.  Not to be missed! Check out this first to bloom Picture.

Blc. New Hybrid (Lc. Florence Lin 'Diamond Orchids' AM/AOS x Bl. Maikai 'Lea' AM/AOS)

Florence Lin (C. leopoldii x L. milleri) produces 17 starry well-arranged flowers in deep red with a darker red lip on a tall stem.  Maikai (B. nodosa x C. bowringiana) has lavender flowers with broad lips influenced by the nodosa parent and improved flower count from bowringiana.  These will have starry red/purple flowers with broad showy lips on vigorous easy-to-grow plants.  The reciprocal cross (SVO 6231) also is available.

Pot. New Hybrid (Slc. Katherine Clarkson 'SVO' HCC/AOS x Blc. Sun Spots 'Vivid Spots')

Katherine Clarkson (Slc. Jungle Gem x C. Mark Jones) is currently the best yellow with red spots I have seen.  It has excellent shape and color, and flowers twice a year.  The expectation here is for the continued improvement of fuller-shaped yellow flowers and red spots, with 6 or more flowers per stem.  I feel this cross will represent the next jump in flower quality and form for this breeding - a must have! These plants are growing really well and showing lots of vigor.  Reciprocal to SVO 6405.

Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Burana Love 'SVO' AM/AOS x Pot. Burana Fire 'SVO' HCC/AOS)

Splashes and splashes and more splashes are expected here.  Burana Love (Pot. Burana Beauty x Blc. Love Sound) and Burana Fire (Pot. Burana Beauty x Pot. Fire Fantasy) have bright yellow flowers with bold red flares; both have excellent flower shape and presentation.  This grex should produce amazing flowers, I am looking forward to seeing these bloom!

Pot. New Hybrid (Lc. Spring Fires 'Lynette #1' x Pot. Star Fire 'New Year Surprise')

Spring Fires (Lc. Fires of Spring x Lc. Fire Island) has strong upright stems carrying 5-9 red flowers with darker red lips.  It is proving to be an excellent parent with dominance for color, strong stems and bloom period.  Star Fire (Lc. Trick or Treat x Pot. Rubescence) has full shaped starry red flowers with lots of influence from Trick or Treat, which imparts good flower count.  These will carry 7-9 solid red flowers on strong stems held high above the foliage in January and February, just in time for the Lunar New Year.

SVO 6245
Lc. Naranja en Flor (Lc. Trick or Treat 'Orange Magic' AM/AOS x Lc. Spring Fires 'Lenette #3')

The name of this grex, Naranja en Flor, is Spanish for “Orange in Flower.”  I was so excited by the potential that I made this cross three times this year!  Over the years, I have been impressed by the breeding qualities of both Trick or Treat and Spring Fires.  I am so confident that these will turn out great, I'll bet money!  And I'm not a betting man…  These will have strong stems holding 10-15 or more starry orange to red flowers above the foliage in March.  Mature plants will be 14-16” tall and produce a spectacular display.  How's that for confidence in a prediction?

Pot. New Hybrid (Blc. Hawaiian Discovery 'Fluorescent Orange' HCC/AOS x Pot. William Farrell 'Native Son')

Bright orange flowers with fabulous shape are hard to come by, so I had to make this cross.  Hawaiian Discovery 'Fluorescent Orange' (Blc. Orange Nuggett x Blc. Bouton D'Or) has amazing orange color - a real shocker!  William Farrell (Pot. Helen Veliz x Blc. Llano) has flowers that are light salmon/pink/orange in color and have excellent shape with a beautifully formed lip.  One of the parents of William Farrell is Helen Veliz, an excellent breeder for orange flowers.  So does this sound good?  Expect full-formed Blc. type flowers in orange.  These plants have excellent vigor and look very promising!

Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Winners' Circle 'SVO' AM/AOS x Pot. Rubescence 'SVO' AM/AOS)

The late Frank Fordyce developed a very productive hybrid, Slc. Circle of life (Lc. Culminant x Soph. coccinea), which has flowers of exceptional size, color and form.  Hybrids made with Circle of Life exhibit consistently high quality flowers.  Winners' Circle (Pot. Sally Taylor x Slc. Circle of Life) was a very successful hybrid, producing flowers of outstanding size and quality.  Frank Fordyce also developed Rubescence (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Seagulls Apricot), a beautifully-formed solid dark red with a darker lip.  This newest cross is the type of hybrid I believe he would be making today.  These are going to have large 4 ½” flowers of full shape in intense colors of dark red-magenta.  This is a good hybrid for the discerning collector and to keep the breeding lines developed by Frank Fordyce alive and in the hands of hobbyists.

Pot. New Hybrid (Blc. Carolina Orange D'or 'Lenette' AM/AOS x Pot. Love Passion 'Island Romance')

Carolina Orange D'Or (Carolina Golden D'Or x Blc. Malworth) blooms with deep orange flowers of excellent shape and substance.  'Island Romance' has a higher flower count than most other cultivars of Love Passion (Lc. Trick or Treat x Slc. William Farrell), with 7 to 11 well-displayed orange flowers. The objective here is improved form with higher flower count, and of course, bright oranges to bloom in March.

Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Martha Clarke 'Amazing'x Pot. Burana Love 'SVO' AM/AOS)

The combination of (Slc. Circle of Life x Blc. Love Sound) is Martha Clarke, also known as “my wife's namesake.”  This grex benefited from the breeding qualities of its parents, inheriting the best qualities of both.  Martha's have great flower color, shape, growth habit and ease of blooming.  Burana Love (Pot. Burana Beauty x Blc. Love Sound) also benefited from its parents.  One standout is the cultivar 'SVO,' which has shapely, bright yellow flowers and bold red flares with great presentation. The expectation here is for a range of flower colors, primarily oranges and yellows, with most having red flares. The flowers will be presented nicely and produced 4-5 per stem.
4” pots $22

SVO 6264      
Blc. New Hybrid (Blc. Hawaiian Discovery 'Fluorescent Orange' HCC/AOS x Blc. Love Sound 'Lemon Star' HCC/AOS)

Hawaiian Discovery 'Fluorescent Orange' (Blc. Orange Nuggett x Blc. Bouton D'Or) has amazing orange color - a real shocker!  For years, the yellow flowers of Love Sound (Blc. Bouton d'Or x L. briegeri) have played an important part in SVO's hybridizing program. Its offspring consistently show good breeding qualities: a slightly upswept petal stance, good color, increased flower count, and the development of compact plants with pseudobulbs that cluster tightly together.  This combination of parents creates an excellent opportunity for a hybrid with well-presented golden yellow flowers of good form on a compact growing plant.

SVO 6268      
Pot. New Hybrid (Blc. Love Blush 'Love Blush' x Pot. Burana Love 'SVO' AM/AOS)

Love Blush (Blc. Love Sound x Blc. Picotee Passion) has a delicately beautiful flower color of light yellow with a light red-rose blush around the margins of the segments.  The 7-9 flowers are supported nicely and have a very pleasing arrangement.  Burana Love (Pot. Burana Beauty x Blc. Love Sound) also holds its blossoms well and has shapely, bright yellow flowers with bold red flares.  Hybrids based on Love Sound, like this one, will present their 5-7 well-formed flowers nicely in colors ranging from orange to yellow, most with red flares.

SVO 6269      
Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Mem. Jim Nickou 'James' HCC/AOS x Pot. Golden Circle 'OPRL')

The Mem. Jim Nickou (Blc. Xanthette x Sc. Beaufort) has bright yellow flowers with just a bit of red on the lip.  Excellent shape and twice-a-year flowering make this a desirable parent.  Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) is one of my most reliable breeding plants.  It imparts fine form, size, color and its ability to bloom up to three times a year.  Each parent has an excellent breeding record, and this is a very promising hybrid!  We are expecting golden/yellow flowers of exceptional shape on plants that will bloom twice a year.

Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Burana Love 'SVO' AM/AOS x Lc. Straight Answer 'No Question' AM/AOS)

Burana Love (Pot. Burana Beauty x Blc. Love Sound) has 5-6 shapely bright yellow flowers with bold red flares, each having excellent shape and great arrangement.  Straight Answer (C. Milton Warne x Lc. Trick or Treat) displays its 9-11 yellow flowers with red flares above the foliage, usually twice a year.  The development of superior strains that produce strong stems carrying large numbers of yellow flowers with red flares has been of great interest, and this cross has the potential to achieve this breeding goal.

SVO 6272      
Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Twenty-four Carat 'Lea' AM/AOS x Blc. Hawaiian Discovery 'Fluorescent Orange' HCC/AOS)

As the name implies, Twenty-four Carat has a solid golden yellow flower, and the American Orchid Society Award of Merit (AM/AOS) is a good indicator of its flower quality.  Hawaiian Discovery 'Fluorescent Orange' (Blc. Orange Nuggett x Blc. Bouton D'Or) has amazing orange color.  This is all about color, and a deep golden yellow is the expectation.  Plants will mature at 14” tall and have impressive heads of blooms.

SVO 6299
Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Mem. Jim Nickou 'James' HCC/AOS x Blc. Love Sound 'Dogashima' AM/AOS)

The Mem. Jim Nickou (Blc. Xanthette x Sc. Beaufort) has bright yellow flowers with just a bit of red on the lip.  Excellent shape and twice-a-year flowering make this a desirable parent.  Love Sound has played an important role in our hybridizing program.  Its offspring consistently show good breeding qualities, like slightly upswept petal stance, good color, increased flower count, and a nice plant habit.  Bright yellow flowers in spring are a sure thing with this cross, and good flower form and stem habit will prevail.
4” pots $22

SVO 6312
Lc. New Hybrid (Lc. Tropical Rainbow 'Montclair' x Lc. Spring Fires 'Lenette #3')

Big heads of red flowers are always impressive, and we can predict with certainty that this cross will deliver!  Each parent flowers with 5-7 blooms held on strong stems above the foliage.  These will mature into excellent show plants with great appeal.

SVO 6316
Blc. New Hybrid (Blc. Carolina Orange D'or 'Lenette' AM/AOS x Blc. Love Sound 'Dogashima' AM/AOS)

This cross has been developed to produce solid golden-yellow flowers.  Carolina Orange D'or has an impressive heritage from orange and yellow parents.  Love Sound consistently delivers good results as a parent, and its bright yellow flowers have played an important role in our hybridizing program.  The flowers of this new grex are going to be a bright golden-yellow with good form, presented well on strong stems.  These are very robust growers showing excellent plant vigor.

Pot. New Hybrid (Blc. Love Sound 'Dogashima' AM/AOS x Pot. Final Touch 'Mendenhall' AM/AOS)

Love Sound (Blc. Bouton d'Or x L. briegeri), with its bright yellow flowers, has consistently delivered good results as a parent.  Final Touch (Slc. California Apricot x Lc. Drumbeat) was a successful hybrid, producing flowers of outstanding quality in a range of colors.  The cultivar 'Mendenhall' is a peach/salmon colored flower and a red lip.  This style of hybrid is predictable, and this grex will produce many-well formed yellow flowers with contrasting red lips on a handsome plant.

SVO 6405      
Pot. New Hybrid (Blc. Sun Spots 'Solar Spots' x Slc. Katherine Clarkson 'SVO' HCC/AOS)

Yellow flowers with red spots are a Sunset Valley Orchids specialty.  They were just a dream 20 years ago, but they're a reality today.  This cross of Sun Spots (C. Mark Jones x Blc. SunCoast Sunspots) has bright yellow blooms with clean red spots, and carries as many as 10-12 per stem.  Katherine Clarkson (Slc. Jungle Gem x C. Mark Jones) is currently the best yellow with red spots I have seen.  It has excellent shape and color, and flowers twice a year.  The expectation here is for the continued improvement of fuller-shaped yellow flowers and red spots, with 6 or more flowers per stem.  I feel this cross will represent the next jump in flower quality and form for this breeding - a must have! These plants are growing really well, showing lots of vigor.

Blc. New Hybrid (Blc. Carolina Orange D'or 'Krull-Smith' AM/AOS x Lc. Tropical Aurora 'SVO')

Carolina Orange D'Or (Carolina Golden D'Or x Blc. Malworth) blooms with deep orange flowers of excellent shape and substance, I think the 'Krull-Smith' cultivar is the best of the cross. Tropical Aurora (Lc. Aussie Sunset x Lc. Tokyo Magic) has an amazing flower color, a rarely-seen intense yellow.  The plant is vigorous and compact, with strong upright stems, and blooms in late March and April.  Very robust plants have resulted from this pairing.  Flowers will be full-shaped golden yellows with red lips, and strong stems will hold 5-9 blooms.

Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Higher Multiplier 'SVO Fire' x Pot. Golden Circle 'OPRL')

Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) has superb form with 3.5” orange flowers and red lips on 6” tall plants that bloom twice a year.  Higher Multiplier (Pot. Rubescence x Slc. Pink Doll) has amazing red color and form on a short plant that also flowers twice a year.  This cross represents outstanding mini-catt breeding!  Plants will be 6” tall, though some may mature a little larger.  The flowers will have superior form, be produced twice a year, and come in a range of colors from orange-red to solid red, all with red lips.

The Laughing Magic (Blc. Laughing Boy x Slc. Fire Magic) has bright yellow flowers with fantastic red flares on a compact plant.  Laughing Boy (Lc. Dennis Olivas x Blc.

Pot. Stippled Sunset (Slc. Katherine Clarkson 'SVO' HCC/AOSx Blc. SunCoast Sunspots 'SVO #3')

What could be better than yellow flowers with red spots?  Plants will mature at 10” tall, carrying 4-6 full-shaped 3.5” flowers in bright yellow with red spots and dark red lips.  I can't imagine better breeding of this type!  Katherine Clarkson (Slc. Jungle Gem x C. Mark Jones) 'SVO' is the best yellow with red spots I have seen.  The SunCoast Sunspots (Blc. Waianae Leopard x Lc. Jungle Elf) was the first real improvement in breeding large yellow flowers with red spots.  These will be fantastic yellow flowers with red spots, a very choice cross!  These have a very nice, robust growth habit.  First to bloom from this cross Picture

Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Carolina Splendor 'Jim Krull' AM/AOS x Pot. Rubescence 'SVO' AM/AOS)

The parents of Carolina Splendor are (Pot. Waikiki Splendor x Blc. Oconee), and Rubescence is (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Seagulls Apricot).  Oconee is a great parent, and its presence on both sides of this new grex will means that we will see its characteristics strongly in the offspring.  Expect beautifully formed, large flowers in solid dark red colors with deep burgundy lips.

Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Winners’ Circle 'SVO' AM/AOS x Pot. Rubescence 'SVO' AM/AOS)

The parents and their parents read like a who’s who in Cattleya breeding.  The beautifully formed and excellent color of Winners' Circle (Pot. Sally Taylor x Slc. Circle of Life) combined with the superior form, solid dark red and darker red lip of Rubescence (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Seagulls Apricot) will yield progeny with full flower shape, excellent rich red-purple color, and the tendency to bloom twice a year.  An excellent choice.

Pot. Little Circle (Pot. Golden Circle 'OPRL' x Pot. Little Toshie 'Gold Country' AM/AOS
)
Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) is one of my most reliable breeding plants.  The cultivar name 'OPRL' stands for Orange Petals Red Lip.  'OPRL' imparts size, shape, color and the habit of flowering two or three times a year.  Little Toshie 'Gold Country' (Sc. Beaufort x Blc. Toshie Aoki) is the best cultivar of this delightful grex.  It flowers 2-3 times a year with superb, flat, bright yellow flowers and dark red lips. This cross has amazing potential!  Plants are expected to produce flowers with superior form in colors ranging from yellow to orange.  All will have contrasting red lips, and they will flower twice a year.  A second group of this same cross is also available (SVO 6701), as is the reciprocal cross (SVO 6563), providing a great opportunity to see the influence of pollen vs. capsule parent.

Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Star Fire 'Xmas Day' x Pot. Firehouse 'SVO')

The flowers of Star Fire (Lc. Trick or Treat x Rubescence) are produced on a strong stem holding 5-7 deep red blooms.  Firehouse (Blc. Love Sound x Pot. Rubescence) has 3-4 rounded red-purple flowers with some darker red flaring, held well on sturdy stems.  These will be compact-growing plants with a clean upright growth habit.  The full, star-shaped flowers will be mostly in dark reds and supported nicely above the foliage.  These should start to flower in 4” pots, and the plants will mature at 8-10” tall

Pot. New Hybrid (Slc. Circle of Life 'Fordyce Herald Angel ' AM/AOS x Pot. Loud Nine 'SVO Screaming Red' AM/AOS)

Slc. Circle of life (Lc. Culminant x Soph. coccinea) has flowers of exceptional size, color and form.  Hybrids made with Circle of Life consistently produce high quality flowers.  As a breeder, 'Fordyce Herald Angel' is proving to be especially exceptional.  Loud Nine (Pot. Rubescence x Sl. Orpetii) is a phenomenal cross; I was on “cloud nine” when the first plants bloomed.  Perfectly-formed, brilliant red flowers on a mini plant - the Picture says it all.  Amazing potential from these unusually nice mini-catts!

Slc. New Hybrid (Slc. Paradise Rose 'SVO' x Slc. Circle of Life 'Mesmerize' AM/AOS)

Paradise Rose (Slc. Pink Doll x Blc. Toshie Aoki) has great color and shows an interesting phenomenon of color dominance.  The flowers of Pink Doll are dark purple, while Blc. Toshie Aoki is dominated by the influence of the lip from C. dowiana.  The yellow and red of Toshie Aoki are recessive for color but known to intensify purple.  Paradise Rose combines these traits and produces intense crimson-red-purple flowers. Hybrids made with Circle of life (Lc. Culminant x Soph. coccinea) consistently produce high quality flowers.  'Mesmerize' has exceptional flowers with good size, color and form.  This cross will produce superbly-colored flowers in shades ranging from deep purple to red.

The vibrant orange-yellow flower color of Guess What (Blc. Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat) and its cluster of 8-9 flowers make this cross one of my favorite March bloomers.  Dean's Gold (Pot. Little Toshie x Pot. Mem. Jim Nickou) has well-formed solid gold flowers with a touch of red on the lip.  They flower twice a year, once in March and again in October.  This is a great pairing, and plants will bloom with 3-5 golden-yellow flowers held well on sturdy stems.

Pot. New Hybrid (Slc. Virginia Dickey 'Diamond Orchids' AM/AOS x Pot. Rubescence 'SVO' AM/AOS)

Virginia Dickey (Slc. Pink Doll x Sl. Pole-Star) is a darling mini-catt.  The plants flower in 4” pots and have sturdy stems holding 2-3 bright red flowers of superior form.  The solid dark red flowers and even darker red lip of Rubescence (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Seagulls Apricot) will give the progeny of this hybrid excellent shape and flowers in a rich red color.  I think these will look like superior Virginia Dickey's with larger flowers.

Pot. Little Circle (Pot. Little Toshie 'Gold Country' AM/AOS x Pot. Golden Circle 'OPRL'

Golden Little Toshie 'Gold Country' (Sc. Beaufort x Blc.

Circle of Life) is one of my most reliable breeding plants.  The cultivar name 'OPRL' stands for Orange Petals Red Lip.  'OPRL' imparts size, shape, color and the habit of flowering two or three times a year.  This cross has amazing potential!  Plants are expected to produce flowers with superior form in colors ranging from yellow to orange.  All will have contrasting red lips, and they will flower twice a year.  Two groups of the reciprocal cross also are available (SVO 6546, SVO 6701), providing a great opportunity to see the influence of pollen vs. capsule parent.

Burana Beauty x Blc. Love Sound) has 5-6 shapely bright yellow flowers with bold red flares and a great arrangement.  This has the makings of a very colorful cross.  This grex will bloom in March with nicely-shaped flowers in yellow to gold, many with red flares.

Pot. New Hybrid (Blc. Guess What 'SVO' AM/AOS x Pot. Mem. Jim Nickou 'James' HCC/AOS)

The vibrant orange-yellow flower color of Guess What (Blc. Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat) and its cluster of 8-9 flowers make this cross one of my favorite March bloomers.  The Mem. Jim Nickou (Blc. Xanthette x Sc. Beaufort) has bright yellow flowers with just a bit of red on the lip.  Excellent shape and twice-a-year flowering make this a desirable parent.  The 5-7 golden yellow flowers, each with a touch of red on the lip, will be presented well on sturdy stems.  If you'd like to evaluate the influence of the capsule parent vs. the pollen parent, the reciprocal is available as SVO 6748.

Lc. New Hybrid (Lc. Pink Treasure 'SVO Baby Love' x L. Finckeniana 'Kennedys' 4N)

It's hard to put into words, but there is something so appealing about pink flowers with yellow lips.  Pink Treasure (Lc. Tiny Treasure x C. loddigesii) 'SVO Baby Love' produces an inflorescence with 4-5 flowers in a beautiful soft pink with golden yellow lips.  Finckeniana is a hybrid made with the Mexican species, L. albida.  This will give a great stem habit, increase flower count and, as an additional benefit, add temperature tolerance to the offspring.  This will be a nice hybrid, with plants producing 5-9 flowers of great shape in pink with yellow lips. Similar to SVO 6281.

Lc. New Hybrid (Lc. Pink Treasure 'SVO Baby Love' x C. Orchidglade 'SVO' HCC/AOS)

Pink Treasure (Lc. Tiny Treasure x C. loddigesii) 'SVO Baby Love' flowers are produced 4-5 per inflorescence in a beautiful soft pink with a golden yellow lip. Orchidglade (C. walkeriana x C. aurantiaca) has light orange flowers with a mostly yellow lip and just a touch of red accent at the tip.  This is one parent of Lc. Jupiter Drops; see SVO 6569.  These have the genes to produce well-shaped pink flowers with yellow lips on sturdy stems.  A very promising new cross with excellent plant vigor!

Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. Paradise Rose 'SVO' x Pot. Rubescence 'SVO' AM/AOS)

Paradise Rose (Slc. Pink Doll x Blc. Toshie Aoki) demonstrates an interesting phenomenon of color dominance.  The dark purple flowers of Pink Doll are crossed to Blc. Toshie Aoki, a grex dominated by the influence of C. dowiana, which is recessive for color and intensifies purples.  The result is the intense crimson-red-purple flowers of Paradise Rose.  Rubescence (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Seagulls Apricot) has a solid dark red flower with an even darker red lip that gives it progeny excellent shape and assures flowers in rich red colors. These are going to be dark, dark purple reds, of excellent shape and presentation.

The first time I made this cross, it was a huge success!  Many were sold in Australia, and my US customers didn't have an opportunity to get them.  Rubescence (Blc. Oconee x Slc. Seagulls Apricot) has solid dark red flowers and an even darker red lip.  It imparts excellent shape and imparts rich red colors to its offspring.  Cosmic Delite (Slc. Bright Angel x Sc. Batemanniana) is a very cute mini-catt with lots of flares. The first to bloom Picture from this cross was outstanding!  These will be dark reds with darker red stripes on a plant that flowers twice a year.  Super nice and not to be missed!

Pot. Little Circle (Pot. Golden Circle 'OPRL' x Pot. Little Toshie 'Gold Country' AM/AOS)

Golden Circle (Blc. Goldenzelle x Slc. Circle of Life) is one of my most reliable breeding plants.  The cultivar name 'OPRL' stands for Orange Petals Red Lip.  'OPRL' imparts size, shape, color and the habit of flowering two or three times a year.  Little Toshie 'Gold Country' (Sc. Beaufort x Blc. Toshie Aoki) is the best cultivar of this delightful grex.  It flowers 2-3 times a year with superb, flat, bright yellow flowers and dark red lips. This cross has amazing potential!  Plants are expected to produce flowers with superior form in colors ranging from yellow to orange.  All will have contrasting red lips, and they will flower twice a year.  A second group of this same cross is also available (SVO 6546), as is the reciprocal cross (SVO 6563), providing a great opportunity to see the influence of pollen vs. capsule parent.

Slc. New Hybrid (Slc. Donna Pasanen 'SVO' x Slc. Tropical Star 'Peter's')

How about a near-mini-catt with stems of flared flowers?   This cross is about reducing plant size while maintaining the charm and flower count of its larger relatives.  Donna Pasanen (Lc. Trick or Treat x Slc. Dream Cloud) has great color with red flares in nice clusters of 5-6 blooms.  Tropical Star (Lc. Tropical Song x Sl. Pole-Star) is a mini-catt with very attractive flared flowers.  This grex was developed by Peter T. Lin of Diamond Orchids and is tremendously charming.  When breeding for longer stems of 5-7 flowers, plants tend to be taller, but in this case the plants should max out at 8-10” tall.  The 5-7 flowers will be flared in sunset colors with red lips and held well on nice stems.

Pot. New Hybrid (Pot. William Farrell 'Native Son' x Lc. Guess What 'SVO' AM/AOS)

Love Passion (William Farrell x Trick or Treat; offered as SVO 6741) has been excellent. This cross is taking that breeding one step further.  William Farrell (Pot. Helen Veliz x Bc. Llano) has soft peach-colored flowers with wonderful form and beautiful arrangement.   Instead of using Trick or Treat, one of its successful offspring, Guess What (Blc. Waikiki Gold x Lc. Trick or Treat) was chosen.  Guess What has many of the good qualities of Trick or Treat: well arranged flowers and high flower count on sturdy stems.  Waikiki Gold modified the color and shape to a rich orange-yellow with wider/fuller floral segments.  I predict that these will be bright golden-orange flowers on strong stems of 5-9 well arranged blooms.  I am looking forward to seeing this flower!
