    Default Cattleya with incorrect label

    I bought this from a nursery in central Florida that was shutting down as he was retiring, I had thought that I was buying a Blc. Haiku Dawn 'Sunshine' but as it started to open I knew that was no way close. I know it is impossible to give an exact name to a hybrid but if anyone has any idea please let me know.
    Thanks

    A hybrid, probably with a good percentage of Cattleya (Laelia) pumila ancestry, leaving hundreds of possibilities. How big is the flower? The plant?

    Kirk,
    I kind of knew in the back of my mind that getting an accurate name for this one is impossible, I was just hoping someone else might have this one with a correct label.

    The flower is 3.75" X 3.5" the plant from the bottom of the 5 inch clay orchid pot to the top of the tallest pb is 13".

    It's lovely and healthy - don't worry about a name.
