    Question Is the Name correct?

    I was given this flowering Cattleya for my Birthday and the nursery where it was purchased claimed it was a "Netrasiri Srarbright". Is this name correct as I am in doubt? The blossoms are about 3.5 - 4 inches in diameter. Thank you!

    Cheers, Michael

    Pretty flowers, but it is definitely Not a Netrasiri starbright, may be its a cross of netrasiri starbright with some Epidendrum/Brassovola, but those chances are also rather slim.

    Michael, I will be the next to say- Gorgeous flowers, but I don't think the name is correct! I am thinking it's more like Lc or Blc and having C. dowiana somewhere in the family tree?!

    Hello,

    Cattmad did in fact identify this Cattleya as Blc. KEOWEE, nail on the head according to photos shown on Google!! Many thanks for the various replies, now we all know a new orchid thanks to CATTMAD!

    Cheers,

    Michael

    It is really beautiful and I would agree that it looks like the identification is: Blc. Keowee
