An intriguing and beautiful primary hybrid from the crossing of Cym. canaliculatum and Cym. madidum, two of Australiaâ€™s 3 Cymbidium species. Flowers are a smoky-red, nearly black, with slender edging of yellow to white. The plants offered here flower outside with our standard Cymbidiums, but would flower even better in the intermediate (heated) house with the light-loving Cattleyas. Flowers may vary slightly from those in the photo above.
In 1966 this cross was first registered (and named by Mrs. B.P. Cooper) as Cymbidium Little Black Sambo, after the children's book of the same name written by Helen Bannerman in 1899. Recently it was agreed to rename the hybrid after the author.
