    Default Epicattleya?

    Hi,
    I recently bought this nice plant in a garden center. I cannot completely take credit for the flowers, as the flower buds were already there when I bought it.
    The name tag says "Epicattleya" but no more details. Would that be correct or does anyone have an idea of the name of this sweety?

    It is a Epicattleya. It looks like Epicattleya Middleburg to me (Cattleya Bactia x Encyclia phoenicia)

    I love the color!

    I hope it's Middleburg because I just ordered one 2 days ago, should get the box this weekend.

    Such a beautiful orchid. I would agree with Clint, Epicattleya Middleburg seems right.

    Cheers,
