I purchased this cattleya that was supposed to be Cattleya trianaei 'Cashens". This is it's first blooming and I don't think I got what I bought. Let me know if you need additional pictures to help with identification. The flower has been open about 48 hours.
Unfortunately I cannot find the documentation or emails for the purchase. Probably accidentally threw out the paperwork with the packaging materials. When it first opened I considered composting it. But it is a very big flower and I like the fuschia lip and yellow throat. I have room for it right now so I won't make any hasty decisions.
Definitely not Cashens variety. I don't think it's A.C. Burrage either. Too much lavender in the lip, and not enough in the petals & sepals, At least not yet. we shall see.
But it is trianaei for sure!
