Hybridizer intro notes:

(Rock Solid x Sue Brown) 28 MRe. emo. Dor. 5 x 3 x 2. 6-way branching (3 laterals + terminal W). 35-40 buds. This beautiful orchid with a plum eye and edge is a cacophony of color from the green gold throat to the tiny wire lavender edge. As a dormant I fully expect ROCK CANDY to be taller in the north than it is here in Florida. However, I simply cannot imagine it being better branched with its nice long laterals at a good angle to the scape plane.

It is simply a very pretty flower that I think will grow and thrive everywhere. So whether you live in gulf coast Texas or northern Canada, the Pacific Northwest or the steamy Southeast I think ROCK CANDY will perform beautifully for you. Fertile both ways.
