This 'little darling' (hence, Kuchulu) displays vibrant sunset colors on this remarkable intergeneric hybrid! From the cross between the fiery-colored Cattleya
Ateshperest and the elegant Brassavola flagellaris
, and what a lovely combination they are! These seedlings have such a wide range of brilliant colors, a sample seen in the photo above: golden yellows, bright orange, crimson hues, and some even have contrsting lips. The sturdy foliage has a terete (succulent-like) texture and compact growth habit.
Established blooming-size seedlings. Seedlings are the offspring of pollination; as siblings they may have some similarities, yet each seedling is unique and no two seedlings are identical in exact color or shape. There is no way to tell ahead of time exactly which colors and display each seedling will favor. Enjoy the surprise!
Temperature Tolerant. July - August blooming.
