    Default Cattleya luedemanniana in bloom

    Cattleya lueddemanniana - First time flowering. To me, spectacular coloring, size, and form -- this one is a keeper! One aspect I like is the labellum covering the column is a deeper color than the petals. Unfortunately, it does not have a cultivar name on the tag and I cannot find an exact match on the Internet to identify a cultivar name.

    First bud to open, and has three more a few days behind this one.

    Even my wife said "wow" to this flower.

    How beautiful! Since C. luedemanniana is a species, your particular clone (plant) will not necessarily have another name. If, by 'cultivar' name, you mean 'clonal name' (those are the names in quotation marks after the genus or grew name), those are the names given to a specific plant either when it's awarded by the AOS or another judging organization, or by the nursery that originated it (pollinated, seeded, flasked, then grew the particular plants from that particular seed) - if they then reproduce the exact genetic copy of the plant by meristemming or other genetic engineering, they attach the same name to the progeny. Only true genetic "clones", or divisions, from a particular orchid plant carry its clonal name. So... the point is, your Catt. probably doesn't have a clonal name - if you show it and the AOS judges an award for it, you get to name it. Of course, you can name it anything you want at any time - I'm just talking about the official names.

    I don't know if there are any subspecies, or varieties of C. luedemanniana (there's probably and alba form out there), but I'm sure the Catt. experts on the Forum can fill you in on that.

    There are so many named C. luedemanniana varieties, I doubt you could ever find which, if any, it is. You might try googling Cattleya leudemannianaand seeing some of the others...it reminds me a bit of 'Royal Flash', but there are several that are similar. Anyway, yours is gorgeous!
