Standard Leaf (flowering size) - NOT In-Spike ($40.00)
Dark Ring Leaf (flowering size) - NOT In-Spike (SOLD OUT)

This is an interesting cross between a 1/2 vinicolor delenatii and a full vinicolor delenatii. There are two types of foliage showing. Some are darker than standard delenatii and some have the dark red ring around the surface of the leaves just as pure vinicolors do. 1/2 vinicolor crosses are not truly recessive as they also have darker foliage and flowers that are also darker than the standard form. It is most likely that some of the darker plants will pick up larger flower sizes with darker pouches. The 'Dark Time' parent was a clone made with the massive flowers of the award quality 'My Time' clone crossed with a very good dark dunkel form.


The flower pictured is a true vinicolor, and we expect the dark ring plants to look like this. The standard leaf types should also have flowers that are darker than normal delenatii. We have not seen the results of this cross yet. The vinicolor form is also far more fragrant that the standard form and we expect that the fragrance of roses will be much greater when these plants start flowering.


Current plants are in 2.25" pots.

An orchid plant may arrive in bud, in bloom or in various stages of in-spike development. A plant in-spike can take anywhere from 1 week to 2 months before flowers begin to open. We are one of the few nurseries to ship orchids in spike or bloom. Most of the time our carefully wrapped orchids in-spike or in-bloom arrive in good condition. However, due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that all flower spikes, flowers, or buds will arrive in perfect condition.

An orchid will arrive while it is not currently spiking or blooming due to being either before or after its bloom season. Check the "Bloom Season" information on the product page to see when the plant is expected to spike and flower. Many orchid lovers and hobbyists prefer plants that are not in-spike in order to watch the first stages of the spike emerging all the way through to the reward of the bloom! If you are sending a plant as a gift, you generally want to send the plant in-spike unless the gift receiver would prefer otherwise.
