    Default Potinara Ayako Mihara

    Here is one in bloom, of my hybrid of Blc Bouton D'Or 'Orange Glow' x Slc Seagull's Apricot 'Choice Morsel', named for my best wife's grand aunt. It's one of my older crosses, but registered in 2009. Compact plants, mostly oranges and yellow, few reds. Good percentage came out very good, and very few dogs (tossed out only a couple). Overall flower size has been about 3-4 inches, up to 4 to the spike. Given the Sophronitis in the background, these should have more intense color and larger size if grown cooler than my conditions. Still, given what I've seen, I consider this to be successful, and have made some crosses using it as a parent (not yet bloomed).

    VERY nice color - just the right degree of gradation in color from the center to the edge of the petals! Good pic too!

    Beautiful bloom. With the size and number per spike this would make a great display. Congrats.
