Hybridizer notes:

WILD AND FREE (Stamile, P.) TET (Wild Wookie X Velvet Ribbons) 38 ERe. emo. Evr. 9 bloom, (12 wingspan). 4-way branching. 25 buds. Unusual form. Crispate. Spider ratio 3.7:1
WILD AND FREE is a beautiful sultry violet black with hints of ebony. The throat is large, wide open and chartreuse. The large flowers dance wildly with long pinched and twisted petals and quilled and curled sepals. The flowers hold well for such a dark color. A wonderful flower. Fertile both ways.
