    Default Blc. Momilani Rainbow 'The Gypsy'

    Another splash petal catt in bloom, definitely color-o-rama type, aptly named 'rainbow'! Easy growing, sweet lilac fragrance, cute blooms! Just nice!

    Thumbs up

    Both are wonderful, and I think I favor 'The Gypsy' or 'Rainbow', whichever it is more often called. So nice.

    Default Lc. Irene's Song 'Ontario' HCC/AOS

    Another splash petal catt in bloom. Easy growing, nice spicy scent, cute pinky flare! Nice! Oh boy, why suddenly I have many color-o-rama floofy catts?
    BTW, thanks for y'all comments. You all are too kind!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Blc. Goldenzelle 'Lemon Chiffon' AM/AOS

    Enough of splash petal catts! (Maybe for now, I have more!)

    This Goldenzelle is probably now considered a classic yellow catt. Nice buttery yellow with a dash of red on the lip. Interesting fragrance, very different from other cattleyas. It reminds me of a lemon souffle or a lemon sponge cake, hence the name! The yellow cattleyas they seem to require warmer temperatures during the winter than other catts in order to do well.

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default C. bicolor x Blc. Owen Holmes ''Mendenhall' AM/AOS

    Lovely hybrid! Red color and different shape/lip structure!
    I have problems in capturing the intense red color but you guys get the idea.

    Cheers. Hoa.
