(Rich 2023) Tet, Dor, Mid, 6" bloom, 30" tall, 4 way branching, 16 - 20 buds, very fragrant, CMO
The 6" dark burgundy blooms of Forever Twilight have a dark red to black velvet overlay and are lined with a fine white edge. A violet watermark sits above a small grass green throat. Sturdy 30" tall scapes with 4 widely spaced branches carry 16 - 20 buds above blue green dormant foliage. The blooms open fully after cool nights and hold their color and form in full summer sun. Forever Twilight is taking my Painted on Jeans line in a fun, new direction with patterns and is easily pod and pollen fertile.

From the first seedling bloom, Light Between Oceans has been a personal favorite. These gently pleated extra large 7 1/2" orchid lavender blooms have a light cream yellow watermark covering half of each petal and a grass green throat. The tall 45" scapes support the extra large blooms with no leaning and the wide branching allows each bloom to open fully. Both CMO and EMO Light Between Oceans reblooms and opens completely with the cooler late summer mornings. Light Between Oceans is easily fertile both ways.

(Rich 2023) Sculpted cristate, Tet, Dor, Mid, 6" bloom, 31" tall, 4 way branching, 16 -20 buds
Oceans Rising is a light cream yellow with a purple eye and edge. The purple and cream cristate fins rise from the throat onto the petal surface. I almost didn't introduce Oceans Rising because it does not like to be divided and won't show the cristation until it clumps up. After seedlings from crosses with Oceans Rising matured with nice plant habit, 4 and 5 way branching, as well as cristation, I decided other hybridizers might be interested in using it. Parent Painted on Jeans is not cristate however it is parent to my cristate Weird Anatomy and One Planet. A Different Kinda Buzz is from my midrib cristate Man in the Maze so there is plenty of interesting material to work with in the background of Ocean's Rising. Easily fertile with at least one future intro waiting to be registered.

(Rich 2022) Sculpted cristate, Tet, an exciting parent for Sculpted cristate forms! After reviewing the past 3 seasons seedlings from Poseidon's Horses I've decided to work with it one more year.

The 5 1/2" rose red blooms of Watermelon Sunrise are a welcome sight on a warm summer morning. Three small white midrib darts rise from the yellow to grass green throat into a light pink watermark. Tall scapes with 4 and 5 widely spaced branches carry 18 - 25 buds and display the blooms without crowding. Blooming for a full 6 weeks starting in the mid season, Watermelon Sunrise is an EMO and CMO with blooms opening perfectly even after the cooler nights found in the late season. Easily fertile both ways.
