Masdevallia Ellen McGeagh
(M. polysticta x M. caudata)
Plant ID: 02723/03576/02723/02723
Additional Information: You can see a little bit of M. caudata in the dorsal with a hint of striping, but the flower is quite cupped - at least on this clone. Three flowers per inflorescence comes from the M. polysticta parent.
Ellen is in the newspaper business and has helped Airedale rescue as secretary and is now our newsletter editor. She is also very good with publicity. Ellen is a soft spoken person and the soft colors of this hybrid go with that. She is also "emerging" into larger roles with Airedale rescue. The clamshell-type of flowers that seem to be "opening" reflected these new roles Ellen has taken on. She is an invaluable resource to us.
