Laelia (speciosa X pumila)
We have had some great results from this crossing of the Mexican laelia, speciosa
, and the Brazilian laelia, pumila
. Most seedlings to bloom thus far have had large lavender flowers like those in the photo above, with the pumila lip, but a few have come with the distinctive, white with lavender markings, lip of the speciosa. Temperature Tolerant. April - May blooming.
