Two species, one local, one from far away

January 21, 2008

Here are two species, one local and one from Asia. The one on the left is from Venezuela Cattleya Lueddemanniana, in this case a cross between Clint McDade and Raga. This is the first Lueddemanniana to flower this year, they usually start later, but I ahve another on in flower. This is a nice size flower, well shaped and more on the light side, very delicate.

On the right is a plant that says Cyrrhopetalum Amabile which is Asian, but I can’t find it in my book on this species and on the internet I found one and it says new species, but I certainly have had this plant quite a while, Look how complex the flower is, it even has like a purple “hood” on top. Very cute.
