    It is stunning - absolutely. I checked OrchidWiz for you on the name. The original name was C. El Patio, but it is now called Cattlianthe El Patio (Cattleya Priscilla Ward x Guarianthe aurantiaca), so you can label it correctly.

    Cheers,

    It's very nice. The shape of the bloom reminds me of C. bicolor.
