Masdevallia and Affiliates

Masdevallia (not yet registered)

(M. lychniphora x A. floribunda)


Plant ID: L0060


Other Information: This hybrid did not get any of the rosy "cheeks" of M. lychniphora and looks mostly like M. floribunda - at least with this first blooming. It will be interesting to see the colors of other clones.

Masdevallia Ziegler's Love

(M. Pixie Lavender x M. Falcon Sunrise)


Plant ID: 04322,04324,04326,04112,04172 (first photo), 0004114/ 4326/4325/4324/4563/4558 (top row)

04562/04172/04564/04323/04560/04559/04322 (bottom row)


Clonal Name: 'Trio Dales' (on 04322)

Award: AM/AOS of 80 points (on 04233) given on 02-16-08 at the Great Lakes Judging Center.


Additional Information: This flower has M. decumana, M. coccinea, M. veitchiana, M. ignea, and M. estradae in the background. M. decumana and M. estradae are both dominant for form - especially in the shape of the lateral sepals. These two species are what give the lateral sepals of this cross its look. The only hint that there are orange flowers in the background comes with a little orange towards the tips of the caudae.


I thought this name would work well to honor both Randy and Mary at the same time. This flower seemed perfect since it was a soft pink with a star in the center. The star signifies that the Zieglers have been Leslie’s shining star since they first met. It also has the shape of an upside down heart. Both Mary and Randy have given their hearts to Leslie and Roofus and their lives will never be the same.

Masdevallia Yosemite Sam

(M. odontocera x M. ignea)


Plant ID: 00633


Additional Information: M. odontocera is quite apparent in this hybrid with the form, the nodding dorsal caudae and the darker striping in the sepals. M. ignea has intensified the background color of the sepals.

Masdevallia Yuliya Petrakova

(M. pteroglossa x M. Rose-Mary)


Plant ID: seedlings (first two photos)/04951 (two right-most photos)


Additional Information: M. pteroglossa was very influential on the form, size and the red "star" in the center of this flower. The rose color of M. Rose-Mary has only come through as a blush on one clone observed so far, but it has elongated the tails somewhat and eliminated the recurving. This cross was made by Paul Levin in honor of his daughter.

Masdevallia (not yet registered)

(M. Winter Blush x M. glandulosa)


Plant ID: 03598


Additional Information: M. glandulosa was dominant in the form and color of this hybrid, but instead of "glands", there were bristly-looking hairs on the interior of the flower.
