Jan. 8, 2015: Larry sent me this picture of a very pretty Cattleya that was blooming at Telly’s.
Slc. Circle Star (Slc. Seagull’s Apricot ‘Blonde Babe’ x Slc. Circle of Life ‘Orchid Eros’ AM/AOS)
We immediately wanted it. The flower did not look familiar but the names on the plant tag looked oddly familiar. After a quick check, we discover that we actually already have this hybrid. The flowers look vastly different, though!
Here’s the very red flowers of the first one we got before (see this post). It’s so fascinating how hybrids could look so beautifully different so we bought the one from Telly’s, too.
Awesome to be reminded of the wonders of hybridization!
