Moraea MM 11-140

Seed parent: Moraea villosa form b
Pollen parent: Moraea tulbaghensis with blue eye

A purple flower with blue eye crossed with an orange flower with blue eye. As usual for this cross, the flower is orange. I like the brightness of the eye color in this one. (For a similar cross, see MM 11-72a.)

MM 11-140a.


  1. Just splendid! I guess the flower is petite, but the colours are stunning!

  2. I'm glad that you like it. You're right, the flower is fairly small. Hopefully I'll be able to cross these colors onto some plants with larger flowers. --Mike
