    Default Cattleya Barbara Kirsch

    Here is another Cattleya that Gin gave us when we traded several plants back in September 2008. I love the soft color of the blooms in this one. Thanks again, Gin!!

    LOL. Hold on now. It was probably going to bloom because of your care anyway. I have only had it about three months. LOL


    Thanks Gin & Wanda!

    Very attractive! Now, at the risk of being labelled a you-know-what disturber, would you say the flower is peach? coral? some other?

    Cheers,

    Salmon, peach, coral, pinkish.. I just love it. If you look close at the first photo, you can see the buds that are still turned down in the sheath. They look almost red.
