Fredclarkeara After Midnight

(Fredclarkeara After Dark ‘SVO’ FCC/AOS x Catasetum Mark Dimmitt ‘Ed Wise’)

(Fredclarkeara After Dark ‘SVO’ FCC/AOS x Catasetum Mark Dimmitt ‘Ed Wise’) Fredclarkeara After Dark ‘SVO’ (Mormodia Painted Desert x Catasetum Donna Wise) is a spectacular spotted flower of superb shape, presentation and size. By crossing it with Catasetum Mark Dimmitt (Catasetum Donna Wise x Catasetum Orchidglade) with its extra dose of Catasetum pileatum and Catasetum expansum in its back ground should allow for improved flower size and lip shape. It is hard to improve on the world famous Fredclarkeara After Dark, but this may do it…. . (SVO 2017)

 

(Fredclarkeara After Dark ‘SVO Amazing’ x Catasetum Mark Dimmitt ‘Ed Wise’)

Fredclarkeara After Dark ‘SVO Amazing’ (Mormodia Painted Desert x Catasetum Donna Wise) is the most fertile of the Fredclarkeara After Darks, it is always holding pods, thus never awarded. The flowers are heavily blotched dark burgundy, have superb shape, excellent presentation and size. Catasetum Mark Dimmitt (Catasetum Donna Wise x Catasetum Orchidglade) with its extra dose of Catasetum pileatum and Catasetum expansum should allow for better lip size and shape. Flowers were 25% larger with an improved lip shape that was black in color. (SVO 2025)
