    Default My favorite Bl Richard Mueller cross

    I love Bl Richard Mueller crosses and have about a dozen in my collection but this is definitely my favorite. This is Bl Richard Mueller X Lc Bonanza Queen. It petals and sepals are more pale pink than the photo.

    That's a really pretty contrast in colours.

    Wow, that's fabulous, Ron! I've heard the Richard Mueller crosses are pretty hardy and easy to grow and flower (not to mention gorgeous!). It that correct?

    PS - Little Angel is doing great!

    That's is very nice, Ron!

    Most of the Mueller crosses I've seen look very similar, so I'm not usually all that tempted to get more. The only one I have is Pot. Hoku Gem 'Super Spots' which I have had for probably close to 15 years now. Only "complaint" I have with it is that the heavy spotting is mainly on the backs of the petals. But it is an easy grower & bloomer and a nice deep yellow [spots are maroon] and it is a mini.

    The one you have there is different from the ones I usually see. I like that one a lot. If ya ever have a division that needs a home .........

    Default Lovely!

    Ron,

    Your Mueller is lovely. As you know, I am a big fan of these plants as well. The lip of yours is very intricate and lovely. My favorite Mueller is Blc. Haiku Dawn (Richard Mueller x Goldenzelle 'Lemon Chiffon'). The Goldenzelle really adds to the petals and sepals. (Currently in spike, picture below is of last blooming.)

    This plant belonged to a hobbyist in San Diego and I had admired it for years and couldn't find one. I was on a list for a division along with another person. He eventually sent me his full plant, which was only 6 growths. I cut the rhizome and sprouted a back bulb and sent the frond division to the other person. That left me with 3 growths, this bloom is from a new, 4th lead. It will be years before it is large enough to divide.
