    Default Cattleya maxima - Ecuador

    This is the time of year the Cattleya maxima really shines here in Southwest Ecuador. The alba are just about done, but the other color forms are in their prime!

    Fascinating ; I didn't know there were quite as many as that different forms. I have a mere half dozen mostly of the "typo" with only small variation . In fact I don't think some of the others, comparable to L.purpurata "carnea" and "Werkhauseri" have been commercialised by the people who sell catts to Europe.

    Loving these cattleyas and the phrags you have shared recently. Two of my favorite orchids.

    Cheers,

    Is C maxima the National Flower, or am I thinking of C.skinneri and Costa Rica ?
