    Default Cattleya Miss Harris (Cattleya mossiae x Cattleya schilleriana)

    Here is another beautiful primary hybrid Cattleya Miss Harris, registered originally in 1887 by Miss Harris. I think it has the best from both of the parents. It has an amazing fragrance that fills my whole office.

    An imaginative re-make I guess . There can't be any of the original cross left I think, although one never knows ! But an orchid of character IMHO.

    An exceptional flower. How big is the plant? Looks quite small in your photos.

    I also think it is a remake, it comes from a old South German nursery.
