Moraea MM 12-109

Seed parent: Moraea tripetala (small purple form)
Pollen parent: Moraea neopavonia (blue eye)

The parents:

MM 12-109a. I really enjoy making these species crosses, because you never know how the flowers will combine. In this case we get the general color scheme of M. neopavonia but the shape of M. tripetala. I like the precise and clean look of this flower. As usual when I cross orange and purple species, the flower is pale orange. I took daytime and night-time photos of this one.
