Spotted Cattleyas

Spotted flowers have been a favorite of mine for years. Seeing those wonderful spots in the heat of summer is a spectacular sight. Today the development of spotted breeding includes flowers that bloom in a wide range of color choices.  SVO is renowned for its breeding of yellow flowers with red spots and the new line of spotted coerulea flower crosses are not to be missed.

C. NEW HYBRID (C. Mareeba Tiger 'SVO Hot Spots' x C. Comets Tail 'Super Nice')

This new breeding is a must-have for serious collectors! We have been diligently working to develop areas in breeding where “no one has gone before” (sounds like Star Trek). These are some of the first crosses we have made with our 4n grex of C. Mareeba Tiger (C. leopoldii x C. schilleriana). Its flowers are huge, with rock hard substance, amazing color and spots. The Comets Tail [Landate (C. aclandiae x C. leopoldii) x C. aclandiae] is also a 4n. The flowers look like a super improved C. aclandiae but with 4 or more blooms on a stem. This grex will produce tetraploid offspring, which is rare in bifoliate breeding. Expect large flower size with heavy substance, strong spotting, and bold, contrasting fuchsia/red lips. This is one of those “very cool” hybrids; even species nuts will appreciate this cross. Among many other good reasons to grow these, the offspring will flower in summer when few other Cattleyas are in bloom. We’re also offering the reciprocal of this new grex with different parents. See SVO 8044.

C. NEW HYBRID (C. Comets Tail 'SVO 3.75"' x C. Mareeba Tiger 'SVO Red Lips')

If you’re a fan of spotted cattleyas, this new breeding should be near the top of your list. This cross will advance the state of the art in tetraploid spotted cattleyas, and we’re very excited to see where this grex will lead. The Comets Tail [Landate (C. aclandiae x C. leopoldii) x C. aclandiae] has flowers that look like a super improved C. aclandiae but with 4 or more blooms on a stem. The parent used here has flowers with a natural spread of 3.75”, thus the cultivar name. These are some of the first crosses we have made with our 4n grex of C. Mareeba Tiger (C. leopoldii x C. schilleriana). The parent used here has huge flowers with excellent substance, a very red lip, and plenty of spots. This grex will produce tetraploid offspring, a rarity in bifoliate breeding. Expect large flowers with heavy substance, strong spotting, and bold, contrasting fuchsia/red lips. Among many other good reasons to grow these, the offspring will flower in summer when few other Cattleyas are in bloom. We’re also offering the reciprocal of this new grex with different parents. See SVO 8042.
