Masdevallia Lillian Ramsdell

(M. amabilis x M. patriciana)

 

Plant ID: 04487/04482,04483,04484/04484

 

Additional Information: This is a delightful little cross with tall stems and petite flowers on compact, small plants. The long tails, short, compact growth habit and sepaline cup came from M. patriciana, while the more intense pink color, tall stems and some of the flaring of the lateral sepals came from M. amabilis. The big plus is that these are much easier to grow than M. amabilis. Once again, M. patriciana has done some nice things when used as a parent.

 

This hybrid was named for the daughter of one of my customers who loves to help her dad with his orchids.
