( Murphy, 2021) 45" M 6" Dormant, Diploid, Unusual Form Crispate
Wow! A lot is going on with this flower. Bitone-red/lavender petals and lavender sepals. Complicated color pattern - cream midribs on petals and cream edges on all tepals. It has a watermark, veined petals, and green throat. Flower form is variable, but usually crispate.
Chaos Theory has the best branching of my intros this year and has very erect, strong, strongly branched scapes. Blooms nearly 2 months. 7 branches and 24 buds.
Out of a (Knock Knock sibling x Morpho Butterfly). Fertile.
Lavender pink with extremely large chartreuse and cream throat, extending way out on the tepals. Cream midrib on petals.
As the day progresses, the flowers lighten, but are sunfast, and curl markedly.
Strong 30" scapes with 19 buds and lots of rebloom here.
Out of (Desperate Housecats x Thank You Dad).
Sinfully fertile. Kids are curly, with big throats
Bright reddish lavender with a greyed edge on the petals. Cream midrib on petals, with a green throat.
The very curly and twirling blooms are attention getting!
I registered this plant, with short height, 3 branches and 13 buds, because that is what I counted on the line outs. Expect much higher numbers.
Out of (Ocean Depths x Amethyst Tears).
Pollen fertile and almost not pod fertile. Great kids with blue green foliage and extreme curling.
2021- I recorded up to 5 branches and up to 25 buds this year.
Cream with a rosy-violet pattern – an etched, jagged eye pattern, and chartreuse throat.
Tall, with well-spaced branching and excellent rebloom here.
Out of (Busy As A x Opal Road), two very good parents. It is producing some great, tall, patterned kids. Pollen fertile and somewhat pod fertile. 4 fans and 14 buds.
Last year and this year, we had at least three sets of scapes in our gardens in 5 different areas. I think that it will reliably rebloom in zones 6-8, and might in 4-5. 2022 we had 5 sets of scapes on two clumps and 4 sets on another. Jim
