On offer is a new release Dendrobium Orchid, D. speciosum v speciosum ‘Lemon Yellow’ x v hillii ‘Captain Feathersword’.
Established in a 40mm square tube, this combination is one that does occur naturally, but is seldom “remade” in cultivation. ‘Lemon Yellow’ is a beautiful, buttery yellow with good shape, size and presentation, whilst ‘Captain Feathersword’ (as its name suggests) has flower stems just like a giant feather duster – a very good example of a “Foxtail” style in speciosum! Hoping for the best of both worlds here – good sized flowers in yellows through to creams/whites, with super long racemes, each carrying hundreds of flowers!
The photographs show the actual parents used and a seedling that is typical of those on offer.
