Bletilla 'Dark Red'

Life form: corm

Bletilla 'Dark Red' is a not RHS-registered hybrid or selection which is especially advertised for expanding the Bletilla color range towards red. As it is common with "red" crossings in families containing magenta and yellow base colors, the red impression seems to be limited to certain conditions and lighting situations. For Martin Bohnet magenta seemed to be the dominant color; only the buds showed a clear burgundy red coloration.
