    Wink Stellamizutaara Kelly 'Lea'

    Stellamizutaara 'Kelly Lea' and it is "made of" Brassavola nodosa x cattletonia 'keith roth',

    and ctna 'keith roth' is a cross of Cattley bicolor (50%) x broughtonia sanguinea 50%.

    I've posted this when it has bloomed in a past year, but I think the color is deeper and more intense on the lip this year, so I am sharing it again!

    I love that plant. Unfortunately mine has gotten a little gangly and has grown totally out of the pot and wrapped around the pot. Really nice color in those blooms you have. Way to go.

    this cross has been around for quite some time. Most of the time you never see it fully written out but abbreviated as Stlma.

    For a bit of history:

    The genus was named after Stella Mizuta, co-owner of Richella Orchids in Honolulu (Stella and Richard Mizuta = Richella). Richella Orchids ceased operations in the 1990's

    Very nice. Seems still has a hint of the Broughtania parentage.
