Masdevallia Redwing

This excellent hybrid is a cross of Masdevallia coccinea and Masdevallia (alaticaulia) infracta with some of the best features of each parent.  It has flowers that retain much of the size, flat shape and color of Masdevallia coccinea but the plant is far more temperature tolerant than that parent and is more like Masdevallia infracta in that respect.  The cross varies in color depending on the color of the coccinea parent and the size of the plant and length of spikes are also more like that parent, though the flower spikes are more manageable.
