    Cool Cattleya intermedia (coerulea x 'Blue Freckle')

    This is one of my more compact growing Cattleya. The blue comes through when the light is right. It isn't a dark blue, more of an ethereal delicate blue. The petals have nice substance and a "feathered" edging at the tips, with only a few of it's "freckles" showing through. I wasn't super in love at first but it really grew on me. Now with it's simplicity, it is one of my new favorites. I have trouble with most intermedia...someone must have forgotten to tell this one. lol

    Oh, I LOVE THIS!!! If you ever decide you don't want it any more, I'll trade you something for it in a heartbeat! Same goes for a walkeriana or a loddigessii! I find the forms of the intermedia, the walkeriana, and the loddigessii to be just DIVINE!!! They are some of my favorite Catts. The simplicity and symmetry are just gorgeous!

    Glad you had success blooming it! It's a stunning flower! Good growing!
