Lobivia densispina ‘STERN VON HEMSBACH’

STERN VON HEMSBACH is a fantastic Lobivia densispina hybrid with bizarre looking freak-flowers. The flower mutation looks very much unlike the flowers of Lobivia densispina usually look like and I´ve been using it in a few crosses this season.

Lobivia Hybrid BLAZE aka BLAZA

Lobivia hybrid BLAZE is probably one of the most popular and best Lobivia hybrids out there. The parents of BLAZE are unknown, but I personally think that it is involving a Lobivia winteriana. The flowers are relatively small but absolutely beautiful. BLAZE is also called BLAZA, but I think that´s probably due to a typo.

Lobivia DESSAU by Hartmut Kellner Cactus Jerk S1E418 Echinopsis calliantholilacina

Lobivia hybrid DESSAU is a true classic and responsible for a strong increase in hybrid quality afterwards. The breeder is Hartmut Kellner and the parents are Lobivia hertrichiana x Echinopsis calliantholilacina. The latter is a regional form of Echinopsis obrepanda that was collected by Friedrich Ritter and you can recognize the influence of Echinopsis obrepanda in the flower. It is one of the parents of another classic called WÖRLITZ and it is an excellent parent for Lobivia, Echinopsis and Trichocereus. The flower is known to add lots of contrast to most crosses it has been used in, which is why it´s often a great parent for fainter colored flowers. The best results have been produced with a faint yellow.

Lobivia densispina Hybrids

This plant is a sister of the Lobivia densispina hybrid MOONPIE and it´s wonderfully beautiful. All of the sisters from this cross have remarkable flowers that deserve to be shown. I am propagating all of the hybrids from this batch and I am also making numerous crosses with it every year.
