[ Orchid (Paphiopedilum Leeanum) | Posted on September 20, 2018 ]

This is the man-made form of Orchid (Paphiopedilum x leeanum).

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Yi-Ying Red Gem) | Posted on September 13, 2018 ]

There seems to be only one clone of this grex currently in circulation (at least in Australia). It is known to have some warmth/heat tolerance, as it has been reported to successfully flower in Cairns. A mature plant can have quite tall flower spikes with 20+ flowers on them.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium erythraeum var. flavum) | Posted on September 12, 2018 ]

This is the Chinese form of the species (from Yunnan). There is talk of raising this to species status again.

The type was the alba form, but a regular-coloured form of this also exists.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Arachnid) | Posted on September 3, 2018 ]

Cym. Death Wish and Cym. Arachnid were originally produced by Royale Orchids in Australia and to my knowledge, all plants were diploid. The Arachnid grex has been remade several times; the remakes I am aware of are:

Orchid (Cymbidium Death Wish 'Dark Invader') X Orchid (Cymbidium erythraeum var. flavum 'Paradise') (released 2015)
Orchid (Cymbidium erythraeum var. flavum 'Paradise') X Orchid (Cymbidium Death Wish 'Withering Glance') (released 2018)
Orchid (Cymbidium erythraeum var. flavum 'Paradise') X Orchid (Cymbidium Death Wish 'Dreamtime') (released 2018)

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Arachnid 'Wendy Dhu') | Posted on September 3, 2018 ]

This is a known diploid (2N). All the Cym. Arachnid and Cym. Death Wish plants to date produced by Royale Orchids have been diploids.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Giacomo Aragall 'Candy Corn') | Posted on August 28, 2018 ]

This is a known tetraploid. It is an alba carrier (not 100% genetic alba), despite its colouration being very similar to that of some albinistic Cyms.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Red Cross 'Wayne') | Posted on August 27, 2018 ]

This particular clone was bred by Wayne Ferrell (after whom it is named) at Santa Barbara Orchid Estate and then passed on to Andy Easton at New Horizon Orchids, who is using it to breed orange standards.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Red Beauty 'Prinse's Frederica') | Posted on August 27, 2018 ]

This is a known tetraploid (4N). There appears to be a number of variations in the spelling of the clonal name.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Beautiful Parish 'New Horizon') | Posted on August 27, 2018 ]

This is a known tetraploid and an alba carrier.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Legacy of Giles) | Posted on August 27, 2018 ]

This grex was named after the Australian hybridiser Leo Giles. NHO made it using Orchid (Cymbidium Coraki 'Margaret') and the 4N alba form of Tracy's Cymbidium (Cymbidium tracyanum).

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Pumilow 'New Horizon') | Posted on August 27, 2018 ]

This is a known tetraploid (4N) and one of New Horizon Orchids' breeding plants. It was made using Orchid (Cymbidium lowianum 'Concolor').

[ Orchid (Paphiopedilum Kimballianum) | Posted on August 27, 2018 ]

This is the man-made form of the natural hybrid Orchid (Paphiopedilum x kimballianum).

[ Orchid (Laeliocattleya Miss Wonderful 'Imperialis') | Posted on August 26, 2018 ]

This is registered as Orchid (Cattleya Mari's Song) X Orchid (Laelia anceps).

[ Bromeliad (Neoregelia ampullacea 'Tigrina') | Posted on August 16, 2018 ]

This cultivar is not to be confused with the species Bromeliad (Neoregelia tigrina) (I am surprised this cultivar name was allowed, unless it is unregistered).

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Lowland Tiger 'Pendolino') | Posted on July 15, 2018 ]

This clone is from the NHO cross of Orchid (Cymbidium lowianum 'Comte d' Hemptinne') (4N) X Orchid (Cymbidium Golden Tiger) (4N). The hybridiser noted it was about half the size of a typical Cym. lowianum and commented that he may cross it back to Golden Tiger again to reduce the plant size further.

[ Orchid (Cymbidium Coraki 'Margaret') | Posted on July 15, 2018 ]

Tetraploid (4N) plant used by New Horizon Orchids for breeding grexes like Orchid (Cymbidium Carlos Segrera).

[ Lily (Lilium 'Europa') | Posted on July 14, 2018 ]

Originally registered as 'Europa' in 1978. It has also been circulated as 'Chris North' and this is recognised as a synonym. As of 2014, the RHS Registrar has advised it will be known as 'Europa Chris North'.

[ Lily (Lilium Pandora) | Posted on July 14, 2018 ]

This cultivar was granted PBR under the name 'Pandora' and so is accepted under that name, despite being uneligible for registration with the RHS due to an existing cultivar holding that name (Lily (Lilium 'Pandora'), registered by Chris North).

[ Orchid (Vandachostylis Blue Gem (1989)) | Posted on July 11, 2018 ]

This is registered as: Orchid (Vandachostylis Lou Sneary) X Orchid (Vanda Rothschildiana)

[ Orchid (Vandachostylis Blue Gem (2012)) | Posted on July 11, 2018 ]

This intergeneric hybrid is registered as: Orchid (Vanda Baby Blue) X Orchid (Rhynchostylis coelestis)

It is a different hybrid to the earlier registration of Orchid (Vandachostylis Blue Gem (1989)) and now shares the same genus name due to the reclassification of parents of the various hybrids.
