    Lovely orange cattleya orchid, Maura. I think these would be good for holiday card or calendar photos.

    cheers,
    BD

    Thanks, Bruce - I actually took these shots by my own little self. And we're going to send out some "Happy February" holiday cards with a few photos in them, so I'll definitely include this one!

    My Orchidwiz is down right now, so I can't look it up in that, and there's no registration for either a new hybrid with this parentage (and I used Rlc. as well), or registration for either parent in this hybrid. I could just be having a brain-dead moment, but surely the tag gives SOME clue to the id. It's a medium-sized catt with medium sized blooms and a really nice floral fragrance. I really got it for the color, but it would be nice to know what it is for sure.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Okay, everyone - thanks for all the help and info. This will be tagged as Rth. Guess What x C. Horace 'Maxima'.
