Sophrolaeliocattleya (abbreviated Slc.) Coastal Sunrise 'Tropico’ HCC/AOS has a wonderful saturated pink color similar to L. anceps, but with an improved flower shape and shortened the flower spike. The plant is intensely fragrant, extremely heat tolerant, and can be grown outdoors in hot climates. The ‘Tropico’ clone is awarded a Highly Commended Certificate (HCC) by the American Orchid Society, which is the highest flower quality award. This means the flower is exceptional in shape, color, and substance. The pollen parent, Slc. Helen Veliz, is one of the best orange art shade compact Cattleyas. It has rounded petals with a full lip and compact growth habit. L. anceps contributes the vivid pink color and weather tolerance. Slc. Coastal Sunrise 'Tropico’ HCC/AOS is intensely fragrant and extremely tolerant of temperature extremes. It can be grown outdoors in hot climates like southern California and in South Florida where there is no cold winter, and can flower at least twice a year.


Note: Slc. Coastal Sunrise 'Tropico’ HCC/AOS is also known as Laeliocattleya (Lc.)
