    Default Blc. Toshie Aoki "Starburst" AM/AOS

    This appears to be the first bloom for this cattleya that I purchased last fall. I really love the color and form. Can hardly wait for it to get larger and put on a bigger show. I just wish it had a scent--but you can't have everything. LOL The two blooms have been out for 5 days.

    Gorgeous. I love several of the Toshie Aoki cultivars, but am afraid they would get too big for my setup.

    Cute Bostie, too.
