Awards

We present our awards for your enjoyment. These are not for sale.
However this does allow you to see:
· Some of the results of our breeding
· In many cases the parents we have used in developing some of our hybrids
· The potential for some of the budded material we still have available to sell you
(yes, we did sell an FCC in bud – Paph Odette’s Charm ‘Hilltop’s Sandy’ FCC/AOS)

Interestingly we find we do not always take our best flowers to judging. If we have something that good, it inevitably goes to work as a new parent long before the next judging session in our region.

We say they are not for sale but check our Collectors’ Benches. We may have some divisions of our Masdevallias for sale on the Masdevallia Collectors’ Bench. There are a few awarded Lycaste divisions on the Lycaste Collectors’ Bench. However we rarely have divisions of our Paphiopedilum awards available. We enjoy having large plants around us too much to divide them.

Awards

It is time to brag! Not about the awards we have garnered and they are plenty, over 160 and counting, but about our ranking on the all-time list of “hybridizers with the most hybrids awarded” This data comes from OrchidWiz 12.2.

Masdevallias & Phragmipediums

Masdevallias & Phragmipediums

in News & Events

We have discontinued carrying Masdevallias. We simply lost interest in them. However we have kept our Keeper Bench plants just in case we change our minds.

Masdevallia Peach Allure AQ/AOS

10804 Masdevallia Peach Allure AQ/AOS

(Masdevallia Keiko Komoda 'Peaches' x Masdevallia Peach Fuzz 'Golden Giant' FCC/AOS)
in News & Events

Our second ever AQ (includes 2 AMs and 2 HCCs in a group of 15 exhibited).  We bred Peach Fuzz ‘Golden Giant’ FCC/AOS on to Keiko Komoda in an attempt to get more flowers and more frequent flowerings.  What we got amazed us.  We did achieve more flowers and more often but with flowers that [...]

Masdevallia veitchiana

91109 Masdevallia veitchiana

(Masdevallia veitchiana 'Gary Baker' x Masdevallia veitchiana 'Blaze')
in News & Events

‘Gary Baker’ is perhaps the finest veitchiana we have seen that does not have an award.  It clearly deserves one.  ’Blaze’ is an amazing example, slightly smaller, but with color that is both vivid and different.  Many of the progeny follow ‘Blaze’ for coloration and ‘Gary Baker’ for size

81206 Sunny Delight

81206 Masdevallia Sunny Delight

(constricta ‘John’ HCC/AOS x Monarch ‘First Glow’)

Very similar breeding to Peach Fuzz and the flowers look very much alike.

Masd Tiger Bay ‘Lehua Stripes Galore’ HCC-AOS

81207 Masdevallia Tiger Bay

(Golden Tiger ‘Angie’ HCC/AOS x triangularis ‘Golden Gate’ AM/AOS)
in News & Events

Two awards for this clone already, even though AQ+ as of 4.5 shows only one. Most are beautifully striped like the picture. Others have intriguingly different coloration

A half box size

in News & Events

We have been testing a 15 pack box and have had good feed-back.  So we are making this half size box available to everyone. There is a handling charge of $1.50 per plant ($22.50 for a box of 15 plants).  This increases our Price Point Paphs to $10 per plant, delivered and Select to $13 [...]

The cd we had offered to societies has become a little dated. It is still available if you are really in need of something, but we would rather not. Unfortunately Graham’s son has gone on to greater things and is no longer interested in producing a new cd. However if we can work out timing [...]

We made divisions from our great Keeper Bench plant.  This plant was awarded a Certificate of Cultural Merit.  It is easy to grow and can clearly earn many more cultural awards for other growers.

Great Dean Haas shaped flowers with lots of color including many reds.  Then again you get some like the photo that was awarded January 2012.  We love the variety than occurs in seed crosses

  • About Lehua Orchids

    Lehua Orchids is located on the Island of Hawaii (the Big island, also known as the Orchid Isle). We are on the slopes of Mauna Loa, half way between Hilo and Volcano in a community called Mountain View. In this location we enjoy the benefits of our almost daily trade winds, and nightly from the cooling effects of our “mauka” winds (winds coming down from the top of the mountain)

    In this location we are able to specialize in intermediate temperature orchids. Our daily highs in summer are about 85 degrees with a 20 degree drop at night. in winter our highs are around 75 and 60 at night. These conditions allow us to specialize in our favorite orchids, Paphiopedilums, Phragmipediums, Angraecums and Lycaste.
