EPIG welcome gift: Schlumbergera hybrid 'Paprika'


A cross performed in 2000 by Dolly Kölli. S. kautskyi x S. ‘Reid’ (= S. ‘Rudolph’ x S. orssichiana Wildform clone 1), this specific clone was numbered KYR-1 and then named 'Paprika'. It was probably the first crossing containing four Schlumbergera species (truncata, russelliana, orssichiana and kautskyi). Flower larger than S. kautskyi with a tomato color. Stems larger than S. kautskyi with sometimes showing the extra tip at the end of the stems, something that is considered a S. orssichiana characteristic. The complete story can be found in the EPIG Magazine 2004.

We offer this species at this time only as a very special free Welcome Gift for new members of the EPIG society.
