Disa uniflora x D. (uniflora x tripetaloides).
A vigorous hybrid, the flower shape has been improved by the back-cross to D.uniflora without reducing the number of flowers on the stem.

Disa (Kewensis yellow-orange x uniflora).
My own contribution to the grex includes a number of strong orange flowered plants. I raised the hybrid between Disa Kewensis yellow-orange and
Disa uniflora clone.7 (originally fom Steve Taverner). At the time I mistakenly assumed that the yellow-orange form of D. Kewensis
was actually a misnamed D. Auratkew which would have made my seedlings D California Gold but in fact I have just recreated D. Watsonii
in an unusual colour range.
