Jan. 17, 2016: The weather has been wacky here in Michigan lately and the Grand Valley Orchid Society Show out at the Frederik Meijer Gardens was greatly benefited by it this weekend–it was actually not arctic conditions outside! With the relatively beautiful weather outside, we were able to take home some equally beautiful plants.
Paph. Hampshire Beau x Kinzua ‘Buffo’
The flower is HUGE!
Larry was immediately captivated by this beautiful bulldog Paph from New Vision Orchids that we had to take it home.
Lc. Sarah Jessica Parker ‘Hot Vision’ x C. Caudabec Candy ‘Pink Vision’
(picture from Internet) Larry specifically asked Russ if he had any interesting polka-dotted Cattleya hybrids available and he recommended this compot. This picture is of one of the parents, Lc. Sarah Jessica Parker ‘Hot Vision’.
(picture from Internet) Here’s a picture of the other parent: C. Caudebec Candy. We’re excited to see the resulting flowers!
Fdk. After Dark ‘Sunset Valley Orchids’ FCC/AOS
(picture from Internet) Yes, it’s the black orchid! Little Frog Farm was having a “show special” selling these plants at a bargain we couldn’t resist.
