Hybridizer intro notes:

{Rock Solid X [(Glacier Bay x Tetra Siloam Ralph Henry) X Cherry Valentine] 35 EERe. emo. fr. Ev. 6 x 3 7/8 x 2 5/8. 5-way branching. 30-35 buds. This orchid with plum purple eye and edge gets its name from the very tall well-branched scapes. The garden presence of this huge eyed variety is incredible. Clear colors project across the garden on large outfacing blooms. High scape density along with excellent branching give this flower great color impact and tremendous show potential.

As a breeder OVER THE MOUNTAIN combines some unusual lines with a clarity of color that is unusual for such a large flower. Very importantly OVER THE MOUNTAIN is easily fertile both ways and in light shade (30%) sets pods with every pollen put to it. OVER THE MOUNTAIN is an important breeder for those doing very large eyed flowers. Easily fertile both ways.
