    Default Bc. Groganiae

    Groganiae = Rhyncholaelia digbyana x Cattleya loddigesii

    This seems to be a quite rare hybrid, if a google search is to be believed. Cross was originated in 1905. I haven't found a fragrance yet – what time of day do you all think I should be checking?

    Lip is a nice bright limey green in the center, and petals (but not sepals) have a slight lavender blush. Or, in other words, colours are true in the pics.

    That first picture is great full sized; so much detail. I think it is a beautiful hybrid.
