    A few nice hybrids.

    Just a few new hybrids I’m liking these days. Huge flowers, nice colors, hooked spurs! :-)

    The first purple colors are beautiful. And the third one just look lovely. Thank you for sharing.

    I wish I knew! It was a random seedling that came up on a pumice planter, and it sat as a tiny dormant plant for almost 2 years during a period when things got a bit messed up because of too-warm temperatures. I moved last May into a place with better ventilation and it finally took off. Now I’m waiting for a bloom. I’m already propagating it and want to name it. Candidates include ‘Chocolate Mint,’ ‘Chocolate Dip,’ ‘Pooper Scooper’ and ‘Hell’s Lotus’. :-)

    'Glad to hear it is on the way to cultivar status. While there has been a bit of a backlash to cultivars that have been registered that some didn't feel were worthy of it I often wonder what is out there that would've been wonderful but the developers didn't want to face the possible criticism. I suspect excellent plants are often lost to posterity this way. THIS plant is very obviously worthy of cultivar status.

    Not only that; but when you make a good cross, there can be so much variation, especially if you have a fertile hybrid and back cross it to one of the parents. The wine red one that’s slightly blurry (Sorry) is a hybrid of laueana x (laueana x moranensis Vera Paz). It’s the darkest of 30 plants; one is nearly as dark, while most are somewhere between it and all green. Some of those “in-betweens” could be nice plants...but am I going to have space to raise a good number to flowering size and see what they really will be? Probably not...
