    A most unusual colour for a cattleya , which is why I put in a clipping from Orchidwiz ( hope Alex won't mind - but its good publicity ? ). The cross is 50 % Laelia anceps ( as it was) and 50% Wendy's Valentine which has C. ( used to be Sophro) coccinea, C ( used to be L.) milleri and C ( again L) cinnabarina in its bloodline.
    My pics of Hsin-Buu Lady do not do justice to the true depth of colour, but those who have Orchidwiz ( or, hopefully, are inspired to try it) can see a better representation than I have managed by looking at the entry, selecting 'awards', then images, and then viewing the one which appears in the top right hands corner of the panel as AM/AOS(W.Bussey) - or altermatively getting there via the Awards panel and clicking on the camera icon against the entry. When awarded it had 7 spikes and 14 flowers , so two per cane is normal. I'm getting there ( well, two flowering growths is a first step ! ) and this years bulbs ( it is in S/H by the way) are notably bigger than last years. It now needs a repot - remove a number of ferns etc, but that is so easy and non-disturbing, in Leca.

    One of the most beautiful cattleyas around and the most difficult to photograph and capture the true colour of the blooms - one reason, i've never posted a picture of my Hsin-Bu Lady. This is a truly great cattleya, wonderful colour, good form, blooms held on strong stems well-held above the foliage and free flowering to boot. Thanks Geoff for the pictures (which almost capture the colour) and the further info from OrWiz.

    Beautiful! Lc. Hsin-Buu Lady "YT" is one of my long time favorites. Some people describe the color as chartreuse. I don't know if that's accurate but it's a beautiful color. I had one for several years. It grew very large and had tons of flowers on it each winter. But, do to my carelessness, it got a virus and I had to throw it out. Now I've started over with a new, very small plant. It's in bud now actually. Congratulations on your beautiful blooms.

    beautiful photos, mine is blooming now and it is one of my favorites, most photos I've seen are corrected to read too red in color, you captured the complex colors quite well, I appreciate the background info also, thanks for posting this.

    I totally agree that it's a beautiful colour but chartreuse it is not. It always reminds me of the royal purple of ancient Persia.

    Wonderful blooms. I have seen a number of individuals try to describe the color of Hsin-Buu Lady "YT" . Recently I saw the color described as cerise. The best definition of cerise I could find is that it is the somewhat bluer color of a cooked cherry when compared to an uncooked cherry. Your photo captures the color beautifully.

    That's the color I was thinking of, cerise not chartreuse.

    Just to nitpick - chartreuse is the name of a liqueur, made by monks in France. It is green.

    cerise - that is also a French word, meaning cherry - the fruit.
    So OK, the flower is cherry coloured, but just what does that mean ? There is one variety , called Bigarreau (France again ! ) which is a similar colour, I think.
    Isn't this difficult !
    I can tell you that at one time the RHS produced a colour card swatch, so that anyone could say that a flower was, for example shade 2632 - and I think in these digital days,(commercial ) printers use Pantone colour s(?) to the same effect.
    The RHS idea was a good one, but it didn't catch on, because the swatch was so expensive, in todays terms getting towards a thousand dollars ( it was a long time ago when they tried it ).
    Still, it does make a nice subject for a discussion; pity we are not all sitting around a table with a few bottles of something - not chartreuse - thats rather sweet sticky stuff -...
