NIDULARIUM ‘Red Queen’ Davis, R. <1973

Nidularium ‘Red Queen’ by Irma Gall in J Brom Soc 23(5): 183-4. 1973 Another hybrid that is not too different from its parents is Nid. 'Red Queen.' Its outstanding characteristic is the clear, bright red color at time of blooming and the length of time it holds in excellent color. The first one to bloom for me held its bright, fresh color for twice as long as one of its parents, Nid. regelioides. I had one of each of these plants next to each other, and they came into bloom at the same time. The Nid. 'Red Queen' was fresh and new looking when the Nid. regelioides had completely lost its color.

Seed Parent: regelioides Pollen Parent: innocentii
