Pot. Adria Marie Sheth 'Pink Princess'
 
Pot. Adria Marie Sheth 'Pink Princess'
(Blc. Malworth x Slc. Circle of Life)

Here is a seedling Dr. Arthur Burke and Robert shared with me of a cross made by his friend Brian Campbell. Chadwick registered the cross who got some of the seedlings. I saw the seedling at Dr. Burke’s greenhouse and was struck with its beauty and charm and they shared it with me. The color is a reddish rose pink with a darker halo around the petal edges. The fragrance is similar to a lilac bloom. Blooms are about 4” on a second bloom seedling. Thanks much to Art and Robert.

(Blc. Oconee x Pot. Carolina Splendor)

With Ken and Eleanor Griffith’s permission, I registered their hhhis hybrid. They owned Lenette Greenhouses in Kannapolis, NC and made this cross. I got the plant as a small unbloomed seedling. It just shows what can happen from a double dose of Oconee and also what a great parent Pot. Carolina Splendor is. I named this clone ‘Ruby Decadence’.

Pot. Mem. Oliver Campbell ‘Keith’

Pot. Mem. Oliver Campbell ‘Keith’
((Pot. Red Heart x Slc. Circle of Life))

The Pot. Mem. Oliver Campbell ‘Keith’ was given to me as a first bloom seedling from my friend Dr. Arthur Burke in Richmond, VA. He has what I consider the best old collection of cattleyas probably in existence. This cross was made by his friend Oliver Campbell and Dr. Burke purchased many of the seedlings from the cross. All have bloomed out to be excellent. This plant has a good flower stem of which very few progeny from any Circle of Life have. Poor stem habit is a major flaw in using COL as a parent. But every once in a while there will be an exception. I have also included a side shot to show the stem that holds the blooms up without any staking. The blooms on this are about 4.5” across and the plant is still young
