(Catasetum Louise Clarke 'Wonder Woman' x Catasetum Dagny 'Fantastica'


This is traditional Catasetum breeding for impressive large flowers with huge lips on arching inflorescences.  The grex Louise Clarke (Susan Fuchs x Donna Wise) is my mother's namesake. This is a particularly noteworthy cultivar that regularly blooms with as many as 7 inflorescences from one pseudobulb, thus the cultivar name 'Wonder Woman'!  Dagny (pileatum x Brent's Black Hawk) 'Fantastica' is also remarkable for its high flower count, deep burgundy flower color and yellow callus in the center of the lip.  We expect these plants to bloom several times a season with large, beautifully-colored deep burgundy flowers with very impressive lips.
