    Default Laeliocatanthe Beauty Holiday Utuado

    A nice hybrid with 50% Laelia rubescens. The flowers close at night as for rubescens.





    And a constant bloomer of the late fall, Cattleya Ginny Champion, 5 spikes to come.

    Beautiful orchids, Eric. I had to look up the Lcn. Beauty Holiday Utuado (L. rubescens x Ctt. Cynthia Martel Utuado). Never seen it before and it is stunning!! I love the purple veins in this blooms center.

    cheers,
    BD

    Thanks Bruce. There is white form and a yellow form of Lcn. BHU. I am sure you can find it easily in US.

    Lovely, elegant Lcn.

    Ah, I miss my Ginny Champion. Had one for about 10yrs. Bloomed two or three times each year with one blooming always around Halloween (Oct 31). Then one year it went into decline and I lost it. Unfortunately too, is that it has been at least 5 yrs to 10 yrs since I've seen anyone carry it.

    Wow. The Lcn. Beauty Holoiday Utuado is quite lovely. Could be get a whole plant pic? I'm really curious too see how the Laelia rubescens plant form combines with the mostly Gurianthe other side of the family. I hope its not a long weak (true) Laelia spike dangling off a tall gangly Gurianthe plant.

    No, It is not. I'll try to do that during the week.
    Thank you all.
