    Default Cattleya Astria 'Ginny'

    She's putting on a nice show so I'll send it to the Maryland show and maybe even Southeast PA. at Longwood. It still has another spike to open.

    Amazing simply divine !! I wish you best luck, I hope it wins. It must have a lot of lodigesii in it, is it closely related to loddiaca (lodigesii X aurantiaca) ?

    I also misspelled it. C. Astraea is a primary hybrid loddigesii x skinneri. It is just opening so no fragrance yet. I'll let you know.
