    Default My favorite Richard Mueller

    As you know..there are so many Richard Mueller hybrids. This one has a very large and slightly open lip (most of them are VERY tubular shaped) and "beefy" sepals and petals.

    Blc. Haiku Dawn 'Sunshine & Raspberries' (Richard Mueller x Blc. Goldenzelle 'Lemon Chiffon') (As a side note I also have the pollen parent of this cross and it is one of my most favorite catts.) Flower is rather large for this type of hybrid (5 inches)

    The plant is not that large. I've had it for three years and the largest pseudobulb is only 10" including the leaf--long, elegant and slender.

    very nice! I have one but have not bloomed it yet. My fav Bl Richard Mueller cross is just coming into bloom and will post it in the near future. It is much like yours...large with a lip that is less tubular but very, very dreamy in color and lip markings. Have I whet your appetite for it??
