Pete,

This was line bred from the awarded 'Leprechaun' clone. Most likely a mistake in taxonomy and not bellina but I like the flower. This one has alot more color than others I've seen.

It has the standard bellina type markings with some random blotches and red suffusion. kind of a semi random pattern.

Is there any meaningful experience with breeding with this variety? Does any of the orange/red color come through or does it breed like a standard violacea?

This is a great flower. I would compare it to Phal violacea 'Harford' from the Little Greenhouse. It does breed differently and the color does come through. This is why it's important to track cultivar name in crosses. Otherwise we don't know which violacea is reponsible for desirable traits.

Here are 2 flowers from the cross labeled amboinensis 'Nicole' x violacea var. murtoniana 'Leprechaun'. I wish I still had these.
