November 13, 2005

The coerulea or “blue” forms of Cattleya Walkeriana and Cattleya
Nobilior are quite rare, I have a few of these Brazilian species and
this week one of eacg flowered. Top left: Cattleya Walkeriana Coerulea
“Choju” and on the right Cattleya Nobilior coerulea.

Top left: Another Brazilian species Cattleya Schilleriana, it has
very waxy, hard petals and sepals and a spectacular lip. On the right a
hybrid, Slc. Jungle Gem, one of its parents is one of my favorites
Cattleya Aclandie.
