Disa Diores ( Disa racemosa x Disa uniflora ) this is a fun hybrid that we haven’t seen bloom yet but should be orangey-pink or red with small to medium flowers. The flower in the photo is Disa uniflora, one parent in this hybrid. The flowers on these plants should be more pink or orange but could be quite red, like this plant.
