Laelia anceps fma. lineata 'Horsetail Sky'
This outstanding cultivar has a noticeably fuller shape to its patterned petals than is usual for fma. lineata
flowers. The "lineata" color form, featured in the plants offered here, is a very uncommon trait of this species and is distinct for its' dark, streak-like "feathering" pattern that marks the true, lateral petals.
In keeping with the species, this plant produces long, upright to arching stems that bloom clusters of star-shaped, medium-pink flowers with a fuchsia and yellow lip on . The foliage and flower of this plant are bright-light loving and benefit greatly from direct morning sun.
Established blooming-size divisions from our mother-plant.
Temperature Tolerant. October blooming. Species from Mexico.
