    Default Blc. Jeremy Island 'Carmela' PHOTO

    First-time bloomer. parents are the well-known magenta grexes Blc. Bryce Canyon and Oconee.



    Awarded an HCC/AOS in 1994, Blc. Jeremy Island 'Carmela' is a fine magenta-red cultivar that boasts excellent shape, a large full-formed "brasso" lip, and a relatively compact growth habit. The fragrant 6" flowers carry on the tradition of its highly-esteemed parents, and the plant itself is a vigorous grower under standard cattleya conditions.

    That's gorgeous, Jason!

    A six-inch bloom is hardly compact, but I'm assuming you mean the plant is compact relative to the flower size.

    Nice one!
