    Default Cattleya Summer Spot 'Carmela'

    This was a bag baby from last year. First blooming. Plant is only about 7" tall and the flowers are about 2.5" in diameter. The scent is phenomenal. In the sunlight it can easily perfume an entire room (which happens to be my kitchen at the moment). Grex is Summer Stars x aclandiae
