This has the label purpurata carnea ‘Waldemar Silva’ SM/DOG. As far as I can find out, Waldemar was a very well known orchid grower, breeder and writer in Brazil.
It’s another division from Asendorfer, Germany.

I agree Leslie, it’s such an unusual colour for a catt!
Another group shot. The sanguinea has gone over but it’s now replaced by the carnea. I will try and get a better photo outside later but it’s too windy at the moment.
So that is 36 blooms open in the sitting room!
I though that would be it for a bit but there a developing buds visible in the sheaths of gaskelliana ‘blue dragon’, ‘Maria Victora’ and a tetraploid tenebrosa so watch this space.

Yeah, what Linus said! I've never seen this particular color combo and it's beautiful.
Do the flowers have a fragrance? More blooms arriving...wonderful!

What a lovely flower, display and garden in background. You are blooming these on this windowsill? What exposure??

These plants were all grown in south facing windowsills. No shading at all. I do see a bit of sunburn very occasionally but the vast majority of the plants adapt very well especially when mature with good roots.
