( Mormodia Painted Desert 'SVO' HCC/AOS x Catasetum callosum 'Black Lip' AM/AOS )


This is a truly novel Fredclarkeara hybrid. I have been waiting several years to have this available - the potential is tantalizing!  Painted Desert has a well-documented and long history of breeding excellent offspring, adding color, shape and flower longevity. This the first cross with the 'Black Lip' cultivar of callosum.  Its color is exceptional, and inflorescences have high flower count and beautiful arrangement.  This pairing has tremendous potential!  Will the flowers be like black stars?
