    Default Cattleya gaskelliana 'Valley Isle' x self

    Came home today to Cattleya gaskelliana 'Valley Isle' x self blooming in the greenhouse. Very unusual...this species blooms in June in North America. The flowers are huge for the size of the plant and this particular species, lending me to believe this is a tetraploid. Seed grown plant of a mericlone selfing.
