Fredclarkeara After Hours

 

(Fdk. After Dark ‘SVO’ FCC/AOSx Ctsm. John C. Burchett ‘Ursa Major’ FCC/AOS)

Fdk. After Dark ‘SVO’ (Mo. Painted Desert x Ctsm. Donna Wise) is a spectacular spotted flower of superb shape, presentation and size. By crossing it with the highly awarded Ctsm. John C. Burchett (Ctsm. Joao Stivalli x Ctsm. Susan Fuchs) with its huge flat lip and rich dark burgundy color will add size and shape to this cross. I can’t imagine a better pairing. Tremendous award potential, with long lasting flowers.   (SVO 2022)

 

(Fdk. After Dark ‘SVO Amazing’ x Ctsm. John C. Burchett ‘Ursa Major’ FCC/AOS)

Fdk. After Dark ‘SVO Amazing’ (Mo. Painted Desert x Ctsm. Donna Wise) is the most fertile of the Fdk. After Darks, it is always holding pods so it has never been shown; its flowers are every bit as good as the awarded FCC’s. The flowers are heavily blotched dark burgundy, have superb shape, excellent presentation and size. The highly awarded Ctsm. John C. Burchett (Ctsm. Joao Stivalli x Ctsm. Susan Fuchs) with its huge flat lip and rich dark burgundy color is truly outstanding. Expect larger, fuller and dark colored flowers that last 6 or more weeks. I can’t imagine a better pairing, except for SVO 2022. Incredible award potential.  (SVO 2023)
