    Default Cattleya Keith Kettner

    Cross of Joe Grezaffi, Medium size flower, lovely fragrance. A creamy yellow/white and gold. I was looking for yellow catts. and found this one with an almost gold center.. It finally decided to bloom. It is a compact grower with single leaves.

    What an interesting lip - I wonder where that came from in its breeding.

    Rhyncattleanthe Keith Kettner (registered in 2010) = Rhyncattleanthe Bouton D'Or x Rhyncanthe Daffodil

    For the 2nd parent, Rhyncanthe Daffodil, it's very simple : Rhyncholaelia dygbiana x Guarianthe aurantiaca

    Much more complicated for Rhyncattleanthe bouton d'or, a very complex hybrid :

    Parentage % :
    Guarianthe aurantiaca: 25%
    Cattleya schroderae: 31.25%
    Rhyncholaelia digbyana: 9.375%
    Cattleya mendelii: 3.125%
    Cattleya Trimyra: 3.125%
    Cattleya dowiana: 9.375%
    Cattleya warscewiczii: 3.125%
    Rhyncholaeliocattleya The Baroness: 3.125%
    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Mrs. J. Leemann: 3.125%
    Cattleya Iridescens: 3.125%
    Cattleya Coronet (1902): 3.125%
    Cattleya Golden Gem: 3.125%


    Rhyncattleanthe bouton d'or = Cattlianthe Wolteriana x Rhyncholaeliocattleya Buttercup

    Cattlianthe Wolteriana = Guarianthe aurantiaca x Cattleya schroderae

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Buttercup = Rhyncholaeliocattleya Primate x Rhyncholaeliocattleya Golden Myth

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Primate = Rhyncholaeliocattleya Primrose x Rhyncholaeliocattleya Heatonensis

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Primrose = Rhyncholaeliocattleya Impératrice de Russie x Cattleya Primrose

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Impératrice de Russie = Rhyncholaelia digbyana x Cattleya mendelii

    Cattleya Primrose = Cattleya Trimyra x Cattleya schroderae

    Cattleya Trimyra = Cattleya Myra (1895) x Cattleya trianae

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Heatonensis = Rhyncholaelia digbyana x Cattleya Hardyana (1896)

    Cattleya Hardyana (1896) = Cattleya dowiana x Cattleya warscewiczii

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Golden Myth = Rhyncholaeliocattleya Mithra x Cattleya Golden Gleam

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Mithra = Rhyncholaeliocattleya Amber x Rhyncholaeliocattleya Sofrano

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Amber = Rhyncholaeliocattleya The Baroness x Cattleya dowiana

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya The Baroness = Rhyncholaeliocattleya Mrs. J. Leemann x Cattleya Ophir

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Sofrano = Rhyncholaeliocattleya Mrs. J. Leemann x Cattleya Iridescens

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Mrs. J. Leemann = Rhyncholaelia digbyana x Cattleya dowiana

    Cattleya Iridescens = Cattleya bicolor x Cattleya eldorado

    Cattleya Golden Gleam = Cattleya Elinor x Cattleya Golden Fleece

    Cattleya Elinor = Cattleya schroderae x Cattleya Coronet (1902)

    Cattleya Coronet (1902) = Cattleya (Laelia) cinnabarina x Cattleya (Laelia) harpophylla

    Cattleya Golden Fleece = Cattleya Golden Gem x Cattleya dowiana

    Cattleya Golden Gem : unknown parentage... it will remain some mystery in your plant, sorry.

    I'm very very very tired !!!



    Don't worry, I use a software to do that. But I had to check some data on the RHS.
    Is this what you want, Carol ?

    Besancon... nice french name...
