Welcome to my 2021 GROW BLOG for the

 

Clowesetum Black Jade (Cl. russelliana 'David N.' x Ctsm. expansum 'Myra' HCC/AOS)

8192 Mormodes NoID ( Morm. Virgen del Valle 'SVO Dark Horse' AM/AOS x Morm. hookeri 'Fuzz' )

 


The flowers of Virgen del Valle (Mormodes sinuata x Mormodes hookeri) have deep red color with darker veins and a fuzzy red lip, a characteristic passed on from its hookeri parent. Here we have crossed Morm. hookeri 'Fuzz,' which has a very dark red flower with a textured lip reminiscent of black velvet, back on to Virgen del Valle. These are going to have deep red flowers with dark fuzzy lips, some nearly black. This cross will  create new opportunities for never-before-seen flower colors and shapes in Mormodes.
