Fred Clarke of Sunset Valley Orchids

Fred Clarke will be the featured speaker for the November 2019 meeting on Monday November 18th, 2019.  Fred is perhaps best known for hybridizing with Catasetums, Cycnoches and Mormodes.  He is also active in breeding Paphs, Australian Dendrobiums, and lots of non-orchidaceous plants as well.  He even has a hybrid orchid genus named after him – Fredclarkeara.

One of his best known hybrids is Fredclarkeara After Dark, an exceptionally dark orchid that often blooms around Christmas.

Fred will have plants for sale.  Even better, he will be available before the talk starts at 8 PM to discuss which plants might grow best for you in your growing conditions.

This should be an amazing evening – not to be missed!

We invite you to join us and learn more about these amazing plants!
