That heavily ruffled orchid seedling resulted from putting pollen from Louisa’s Song onto a seedling of  mine that had nothing going for it but vigorous growth and bright orchid color.  It got some of the best of both parents, for a change, but it had poor branching and bud count.  I tried to cross it without success.  This was a bad year for crosses on just about everything.  I’ll keep it and try again next year.  Of the pods I did get, I am most excited by Rachel Julia X Louisa’s Song.  RJ has Conjuration’s stalks and bud count, and RJ seedlings that bloomed this year inherited that too.  Crossed with Act of Kindness most were too yellow for me.  I did keep a couple of yellow/lavender bicolors from it.  I can’t help dreaming of RJ’s stalks and colors with Louisa’s Songs’ size and ruffles.  That’s what keeps us going; isn’t it?

That is a lovely color, Francelle, with lots of nice ruffles!  Would you mind giving us some info on it?  Parentage? Bud count, height, etc.

This is my favorite seedling from the crop planted in 2005 and blooming for the first time this spring.
