    Default Cattleya Sun Rise Sun Set (C. Mary Ellen Carter x C. Final Touch)



    Finally have one of my newly downsized collection in bloom. This is a very young Catt hybrid - first bloom. About 4-5" across. I am a bit disappointed that it has no fragrance, but it's from many generations of hybrids, so the likelihood of a scent would be small, I suppose.
