*AERIAL DISPLAY (Stamile,P.) TET 251-N [(Moonlit
Masquerade x Tetra Rainbow Spangles) X Tetra Marked By Lydia] 43” EERe.
Ev. fr. emo. 9 ½” x 1 ¾” x ¾”. 14” wingspan. Cascading
spider. Spider ratio 4.0:1. 5-way branching. 25 buds. Strong erect scapes.
I have bloomed a good many seedlings from this cross and AERIAL DISPLAY
has always been my personal favorite. It is something about the very large
size of this flower – 14” if stretched out, 9 ½” as it naturally
stands and the gentle cascading presentation of the flowers that make it
so beautiful. AERIAL DISPLAY can be described as a yellow with a maroon
red eyezone but it is the clarity of color and striking contrast that make
this flower one of the boldest in the garden. A great parent for chevron
and patterned eye spiders. But alas, I have never gotten a pod on it. To
my knowledge, it is pollen fertile only.
