    Default Lc. walgery (L. briegeri Cattleya walkeriana)



    It's not quite as blue in life as the picture came out but I figured I'd let my camera lie for me a little. This came out a very cute starry but flat bloom, with the briegeri shape to the lip, and pretty magenta coloring over a very pale yellow. Sparkly as anything in the sunlight. And it has another bud, which I hope blooms out as nicely as this one did. Very very very happy with this one!

    Thanks all! I do like the almost-briegeri shape to the lip quite a lot. The one petal relaxed a bit, too, so it's come to a more even star shape. It's a cross I'd recommend.
