Enanthleya Golden Sunburst
'Redland 20' AM/AOS
Exhib: Plantio la Orquidea

This week we present the five awards granted at the Redland International Festival on May 12. This year was the festival's twentieth year and it has grown to be the most eagerly awaited orchid event of the year.

The eye catching hybrid shown here was made using the rarely used Bahamian species Encyclia rufa. The pollen parent is the venerable Cattlianthe Gold Digger. In some hybrids such as Rhyncatclia Saint Thomas, the flat, rolled lip of E. rufa dominates. But when E. rufa is crossed with parents that have Gurianthe aurantiaca in the background the offspring have a more pleasing trumpet-shaped lip. Of the few hybrids I have registered, Enanthleya Rojorufa (Ctt. Rojo) looks very similar to the hybrid pictured here but in orange and gold tones.
