    The colors in the lip contrast beautifully with the pristine white of the rest of the flower. Nice cultivar!

    Such a bold cattleya orchid bloom. I like the stark contrast in color between the lip and the petals. Beautiful orchid.

    cheers,

    Beautiful! It looks as if a plain white bloom with yellow/orange highlights with the purple being painted on top of the two other colors.

    This is one of the best semi-albas of jenmanii from Canaima. I have one from Michael Sinn that is almost as good, though I think yours is the one I prefer.

    Thanks Jervis. It had 5 flowers! Note the magenta flares at the tips of the petals too.
