the very large flowers have a white base and throat suffusing from the center to pinkish fuchsia-red with a thin, brilliant red lip margin around the complete petal. The tube is white. Buds are fuchsia-red and blunt ended. The flower is reported to be huge but not early flowering.
phylloclades are large, medium green with small forward-facing dentations. Apex dentations are larger. Growth habit is cascading. Interestingly some phylloclades exhibit an extra dentation on one side toward the apex, which is indicative of S. orssichiana genetics. Given the size of flower and growth habit, the parentage likely had orssichiana genes present. Randy Whitton states the plant was obtained from a Connecticut grower in the mid 1970s. Possibly a Dolly Kölli cultivar.
