    Cattleya purpurata var. flamea

    Lately bloomed some nice darker C. purpuratas in the estriata, flamea, rubra and sanguinea varieties.
    This plant is my 2012 flamea favorite.
    Remarkable are the big, well shaped dark lips.

    Gorgeous, Horst - the lip is amazing but the whole shape of the bloom is lovely. One of your best photos, I think.
