Big flowers, sultry bronzed colors, and a bold two-tone lip: these are all the hallmarks of this singularly handsome, Brazilian species. This is an all-time favorite flower for Summer, with large blooms easily reaching 6 inches across, some even bigger. The foliage can stand 18 inches tall, and the large specimens in full bloom are real show-stoppers!
These seedlings are from crossing of select parents, and their bronzed colors range from smoky fawn-brown to bright copper, and on rare occasion even golden hues. It's the signature lip, however, that really 'steals the show': the rich, rosy-pink lip shifts dramatically to a crimson throat so dark it can appear nearly black on some flowers! A superb outdoor orchid!
Formerly classified as a Laelia.
Established blooming-size seedlings. 'Seedlings' are the offspring of pollination; as siblings these may be similar, yet each is unique and no two are identical in precise color or shape. There is no way to tell before they bloom which colors and display each will express. Enjoy the surprise!
Temperature Tolerant. July blooming. Species from Brazil.
