    Nice flower!
    But I must say that I do not think that is a C. walkeriana, the lip for once is compleatly different.
    But I do not know what it can be.

    The name of the cross is correct even though the walkeriana in the plant isn't obvious because of the flower shape. I have the same cross and it's been a good bloomer for me. I had a flower spike on it two years ago that had 5 flowers on it. Last year it was only 3 per stem. I think it's a very good orchid. Your's is beautiful. Good growing.
