( Cl. Grace Dunn 'Live Oak' HCC/AOS x Morm. hookeri 'Fuzz' )

 

Grace Dunn (warczewitzii x rosea) produces 15 or more pink and green flowers with cute frilly lips on 3-4 pendulous inflorescences from leafless bulbs in mid-winter. Morm. hookeri is one of my favorite Mormodes species, and this clone has a very dark red flower with a textured lip reminiscent of black velvet – very unusual.  Mormodes are dominant for color transmission, so expect flowers in shades of red to dark red with darker lips. Some lips might even be a bit fuzzy.
