Laelia anceps fma. lineata 'Starburst'
The "lineata" form in Laelia anceps
is a beautiful and very uncommon color type characterized by the dark, streaky "feathering" pattern throughout the petals. This outstanding, select cultivar also has a particularly vibrant lip.
True to the species this plant produces lovely clusters of star-shaped flowers of vibrant lilac-pink with a fuchsia and golden lip. The blooms are held on long, slender stems that can stand upright, or arch gracefully over the sturdy, light-loving foliage.
Temperature Tolerant. October blooming. Species from Mexico.
