Mormodes Exotic Treat
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.
Mormodes Virgen del Valle is an orchid hybrid originated by F.Clarke in 2009. It is a cross of Morm. sinuata x Morm. hookeri. It is considered a "primary hybrid" because it is a cross between two species.
