On offer is a NEW RELEASE seedling Australian Native Dendrobium Newbold Beauty ‘Galactic’ x Coolart Sunshine ‘Babylon Gold’ growing in a 40mm tube.
One of two new crosses that feature Coolart Sunshine ‘Babylon Gold’ as a first time parent. ‘Babylon Gold’ is the absolute best of the grex we have seen, with the heaviest of substance blooms at 65mm, perfect shape, and glorious, rich golden yellow blooms. ‘Galactic’, also a first time parent, has large kingie styled blooms of around 45mm, with strong, clear speckling and a labellum that we are looking to come through in the seedlings to give ‘Babylon Gold’ the one improvement it needs.
With a double dose of Eureka, and at least one shot of ‘Windermere’ in ‘Babylon Gold’, we’re optimistic that the colour and patterning from ‘Galactic’ will shine through. Looking for golden yellows of full shape at around the 55mm mark, overlaid with pink/purple speckling, intricately patterned purple labellums and around 15-20 blooms per stem. Will be robust growers that form impressive displays at maturity.
Photographs show both parents, as well as an example of the seedlings on offer.
