    Cattleya trianae var. alba

    All together 12 flowers on 3 inflorescence.
    One inflorescence has 5 flowers, the other two have 4 and 3 flowers.
    Even the flowers are not the best and could have larger petals and sepals I'm happy to have this plant.

    Does the lip on this one have the edge like a dygbyana cross? I have a similar cattleya in bloom right now. It usually blooms twice a year and looks very similar to yours and has no name and no scent.

    Connie,
    The edges of a C. trianae are ruffled like all big Cattleyas.
    Non complex Rl. dygbiana crosses have ruffled and hairy edges.
    Only complex Rlc. crosses loose the hairy edges and the ruffled edges of Cattleyas dominate the Rl.digbyana influence.
    C. trianae has scent.
