    Default Iwan. Apple Blossom

    This is one of my favorites of the the little guys. This is a first bloom plant that has a spike of 5 buds. It's blooms are long lasting and has subtle color changes as the blooms mature.

    Quite an ancestry this beauty has! Cattleya x Caularthron x Guarianthe x Laelia x Rhyncholaelia x Sophronitis. I love it!

    Nice! Obviously a very variable cross. I have seen great variance in color, even yellow from pale top deep. Mosat common is cream with pink tinge, the color of an apple blossom

    I love this one! Mine is currently in bud. Last year it bloomed with the apple trees and the fragrance is very close!
