    Of course but not in shape, colors are variable. Eldorado is one of the smallest unifoliate Cattleya (7 to 11 inches pseudobulb + leaf).
    Jordan, all I know about Cattleya eldorado, I learned it from my Brazilian friends Mauro Rosim and Vitorino Castro.
    Look at the Eldorado Gallery of Mauro Rosim (3 pages) : Here. Always the large orange disc in the throat, the lavender/purple (or only a spot) on the bottom edge of the lip and the fringed lip border. As Chadwick says : the color pattern of the lip is distinctive to the species. For a precise description of the flower, read Chadwick or Withner.

    It's not mine. Congratulations must go to Mauro Rosim.

    Betty, a gift from a friend is always precious, regardless of the tag.

    It may take a while, Matt, but it will come back. I believe that the cattleya family of orchids has the most amazing scent. Good luck with your cattleya...it sounds like its on the mend to me. Thanks again, for commenting, everyone.....Betty

    Thanks, everyone...My husband really deserves the credit, as he claims this one as "his orchid!" He & I both appreciate the compliments...Betty :- )
