    Cattleya trianae coerulea flamea

    One of the rarer color forms of this species. The blue flamea markings are quite large and deep in color. Will be useful in future breeding for this type. Plant arrived November about 4 months ago, rooted and bloomed (upside down lol). Still not as strong yet to reach potential flower form...

    Cattleya warneri coerulea

    A winter blooming unifoliate Cattleya species with massive 20 cm (8 inches) blooms. The petals are so big and heavy the midrib bends to the gravity, giving it a soft droopy look. On a smaller bloom in previous years, this droop was a lot less. But alas, is size or form better? That is the...

    Cattleya bowringiana coerulea ‘Blue Smoke’ HCC/AOS

    Cattleya warneri coerulea

    Warneris have one of the largest cattleya flowers of the species (next to mossiaes), up to 20 cm (around 8 inches) in natural spread. Although they don’t have the full round petals of the hybrids, they make it up with their delicate colouring and fragrance. One of my favourite of the genera...

    Cattleya jenmanii fm. coerulea

    Blooming for the 2nd time in 6 months, jenmaniis are very floriferous, making two flowering growths a year if happy. This one produced larger flowers in the fall, with the cool nights elongating the floral parts and allowing more blue pigments to colasce. Huge at NS = 17 cm!!

    Cattleya lueddemaniana forma coerulea flamea

    One of my treasures came into bloom to surprise me. A rare form of the coerulea lueddemaniana with blue splashes on the petal tips. Great form and deep blue lip.
