    Beautiful, Hoa. It must have been quite a show with your Floofies in it! Those red Catt's are amazing, just the saturation of colour! I think I want at least three of each!

    Hi Tami,
    Your wish is the command, heheheee ... I include the name of all the catts just in case since we all have different tastes and preferences!!!

    Here are the names of the orchids in order of appearance:
    First Post
    1) Bc. Mount Anderson 'Genevieve'
    Very large soft pink.
    2) Cattleya harrisoniana "Streeter's choice" FCC/AOS SM/15WOC
    A famous tetraploid, supposedly very fertile, used much in breeding and one of my most expensive orchids. The blooms are thick, somewhat waxy in texture, and quite long lasting.
    3) Lc. Mari's Song 'CTM 217' HCC/AOS
    A well-known splashed catt, easy growing and quite compact!
    4) Lc. Gila Wilderness 'Nippon Treasure'
    I am not sure of the award but it is quite flashy when in bloom.

    Second Post
    1) Blc. Bryce Canyon 'Splendiferous' AM/AOS
    A well-known rose purple catt.
    2) Blc. Edisto 'Newberry' AM/AOS
    A well-known rose-red color catt. Somehow the flowers are of small stature
    this year!
    3) Lc. Pirate King 'Port Wine'
    A gorgeous royal purple catt just like port-wine as the name suggests!
    4) Blc. Lucky Strike 'AV Orchids'
    One of the Lucky Strike cultivars with dark purple color!

    Third post
    1) Blc. Cherry Suisse 'Kauai' HCC/AOS
    A lovely bright red catt!
    2) C. Cheri Belle 'Southern Beauty'
    A large semi-alba.
    3) Pot. San Damiano 'Halona'
    Gorgeous salmon-red color catt!
    4) Lc. Mary Elizabeth Bohn 'Royal Flare' AM/AOS

    Fourth post
    1) Blc Alma Kee 'Tipmalee' AM/AOS
    An old-timer that seems never going out of fashion! A gorgeous yellow, well-known but reliable bloomer.
    2) Lc. Granier Charm 'Hillary' AM/AOS
    A newer blue hybrid from Mr. Granier.
    3) Lc. Dinard 'Blue Heaven' AM/AOS
    A super gorgeous blue catt!!! A few years back, one plant of this clone won the GRAND CHAMPION prize of the Southland Orchid Show (aka, the most beautiful and best orchid of the whole show!)
    4) Blc. Dora Louise Capen 'Lea' AM/AOS
    A super gorgeous yellow catt!!! The yellow color here is more like buttery yellow, a softer tone than the Alma Kee.


    Hi Ischel1,
    Thanks. Glad that you enjoy the pictures!

    Hi Tim,
    Thanks so much, old buddy! I like the red as well, the color is so saturated that it is so captivating!
    Where are the old timers? I have not been around of late but what happens to them?

    Oh, BTW, among the catts posted this time, I believe, at least 4 of them had not been posted in this thread previously!!!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    I can't believe that Catt harrisoniana... it is so well filled out that I thought it was some kind of hybrid!!!

    The old timers.. hmm, I guess they are a little busy, like McJulie and her book, although every so often you see em pop in for a lurk and a quick post. Diane's just recently completed a Travelogue, and I think I might have even seen the Mad Scientist posting something about the progress of the Cattleya breeding... which makes me think, we're about due for an update.

    Guess, you have to keep entertaining us for awhile, with more of your beauties, Hoa!
