    Default Cattleya Shelly Compton 'Touch of Class' Not !

    This is another one I rescued this morning. My friend told me that It was Catt. Shelly Compton 'Touch of Class'. I have searched for it and I am pretty sure it is not ! It is missing the splash of purple on the petals. SOOOOOO any guesses at what it might be.?
    Otherwise here goes another beautiful NOID added to my long list!!!!!

    Beautiful! I can't see anything that would distinguish it from a lot of the other big semi-albas that are available. I always like a purple lip with a white border. It really has some nice gold in the throat also. Another great find. Congratulations.

    I like the whites (albas?) with the colored throats. Does it have a fragrance? Do all white catts have a sweet fragrance? If not, they should!

    Probably a Shelley Compton, Angela but not Touch of Class as you say. Like these though.

    It looks like an artist created that bloom--absolutely beautiful.

    Whatever it is, it's gorgeous! I agree about the white edging on the lip...that usually does it for me!
