Catasetum Portagee Star ‘Jamie Lawson’s Sunrise’ HCC/AOS × Catasetum denticulatum ‘SVO’ AM/AOS
Catasetum Portagee Star (Catasetum expansum x Catasetum Black Knight) interestingly this grex has the 3 same parental species as the famous Catasetum Donna Wise, pileatum, expansum, and tenebrosum. 'Brian Lawson's Sunrise' carries up to 15 flowers in shades of yellow and burgundy, and is very attractive. The denticulatum has a nice yellow lip, 25 flowers and is a small growing plant. Here we are breeding in a new direction for reduced plant size while keeping good flower color and high flower count. This direction in breeding for small growing plants has been spectacular. SVO Item 2211
