Mormodes lawrenceana

Unregistered Hybrid

 

( Clowesia Rebecca Northen 'Grapefruit Pink' x Mormodes Mimi 'Wide Segements' )

 

Clowesia Rebecca Northen (Grace Dunn x rosea) is a well-recognized plant and good for breeding. It is easy to grow and has beautiful, frilly pink flowers with a marvelous citrus fragrance, produced on multiple pendent inflorescences.  Mormodes Mimi (lawrenceana x ignea) is very floriferous, blooming with 2-3 upright spikes per bulb, carrying 12-15 flowers each in beautiful orange tones covered in fine burgundy spots. This cultivar also has very wide petals that give the blooms a fullness not often seen in Mormodes. These will flower late in the year with cascades of 12-15 flowers in shades of orange to pink. Mormodias make spectacular plants at maturity, producing lots of charming flowers cascading over the sides of the pot.

Mormodes Mimi

( Mormodes lawrenceana x Mormodes ignea )

 

Mormodes is a very interesting genus within Catasetinae.  They've gotten a reputation as hard to grow…and some are.  I have been growing them for years, and I now have selected the best growers and bloomers. Interestingly, hybrids between two species or “primary hybrids” like this one exhibit a phenomenon called ‘hybrid vigor,’ in which the offspring are more vigorous and easier to grow and flower compared to the parent species.  These will bloom with 2-4 inflorescences per bulb and fragrant, colorful flowers in orange-gold with darker burgundy spotting.  If you have good success growing Catasetums, these should do equally well.

Clowesetum Black Jade

Written by

Clowesetum Black Jade

 

This is a very floriferous hybrid influenced by the exceptional flower count of Clowesia russelliana. The flowers will be green to deep jade green, and lips will be green with a dark burgundy center. Expect many flowers on 2-foot-long pendulous inflorescences. Yes, you read it right – Two-foot- long inflorescences.  These plants will produce a memorable show of long-lasting flowers in late summer.  A spectacular hybrid.
