Cattleya Heathii 1 was registered in 1907. I have the rubra form as shown above. Like so many of the original primary hybrids, it was used as a parent about 19 times and then probably forgotten as the rage for Cattleya cut flowers took over. It is only more recently that Heathii has been remade. I don’t think it has been awarded very much. I know that Orchids Limited (where I got my rubra one) has made a coerulea form as well that they have for sale.
I love Heathii and don’t see many and wonder why.
Pared Where did you find the alba form?
my tipo form has been in bloom almost continually since October putting out at least 10 blooms.View attachment 25746
