    That is a beautiful harrisoniae! It just seems like absolute perfection! It looks to have nice flast form and a perfectly symmetrical lip. If it were my plant I'd call it 'Lavender Perfection'.

    Looks like a Cattleya harrisoniana, or C. loddigesii to me. Don't see any C. leopoldii in there at all - somebody goofed up.

    Beautiful blooms, thanks for sharing.
