I exhibited some of my orchids at a local show recently (the Southland Orchid Show). I thought I would give people around here of this friendly forum a treat as well ...
Our virtual show continues of course ...
A few more catts of different shades ...
A few more catts of various shades, in time for the fall show ... There are more but I don't have time to take pictures and process them ... Hope you all enjoy what being offered ...
Wonderful pic, Hoa, thanks for sharing! Could you post the names of the last four please? I'm on the hunt........
Oh Hoa, the fabulous pics on this thread have me in awe of you and you magnificent orchids. Thanks you so much for sharing. It has given me much pleasure.
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!
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:
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.
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
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!
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
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.
Thanks. Glad that you enjoy the pictures!
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!!!

They are all very beautiful!
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!
