    Default cattleya Jeweler's Art "Waiomao Plum" HCC/AOS

    Very good colour , Bill. The yellow edging on the lip adds to its attractiveness.

    I have this one and the bud were just emerging from the sheath and they blasted. Yours is lovely! Mine still has 2 sheaths sitting there empty. Maybe I should show these pics to mine and tell it to get with the program!

    Is the color an orange-red? Certainly it looks like it is an unusual color.
