(M. Angel Heart x M. Minaret)
Plant ID: 02549
Clonal Name: 'Free Spirit'
Award: AM/AOS of 80 points given on 10-20-2007 at the Great Lakes Judging Center
Additional Information: This hybrid has much promise with (M. ignea x M. infracta) as one parent and (M. yungasensis x M. ignea) as the other. Stripes are prevalent, but with a hot pink background. The size of the inflorescences seem smaller than the parents, but the color and form is quite nice.
This cross was done by a new hybridizer in the Long Island area, Tony Millet, and named after his mother. It was his first cross to bloom!
