    Default Rth. Suncoast Sundrops

    (Ctt. Chocolate Drop x Rlc. Love Call) My first blooming of this cattleya. Very pleased with the combination of color in these blooms. Last photo in the set is roughly 1 week after blooming and some of the reds have faded to a "copper".

    Very pretty. How is its scent?

    I just encountered my first C Chocolate Drop (not crossed any further) at my local orchid nursery. It has a fabulous scent. The nursery stated, if they had any of them for sale, it would be a fight over it/them.

    Mild to medium floral. Have to be within 1-2 feet to detect.
