    Default Cattleya Sea Breeze "Blue Ribbon"

    Another favorite of mine. Love the soft colors and the fragrance is a nice strong floral scent. Has a touch of the scent of Bourbon roses to it. Another first bloom for me. All three buds opened with in a day and have been open for 4 days.

    That is a pure beauty, I have wanted this one for some time now. It would be a nice founding stone for blue breeding with good flower form and flower placement. Congrats on blooming this beauty !
