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.
