    Default Cute Catt to share...

    This guy is in bloom with 6 huge flowers! It has secured itself to the bench, so I can only get a shot of the three on this side, but it sure is nice.

    Very lovely lavender catt!!! There is a bluish shade to the blooms as well. Is this another riddle? We have to get back to working, ya know ... Hehhehhee!

    I did not mean for it to be a riddle. I just forgot to look at the tag. I will check. Let the guessing begin!

    So it is another riddle! Oh dear, I really need to get back to work, need to get back to work ... OKie, what the heck! What I really notice is the throat, most catts have yellow throat, only certain species influences would give you that white throat ...Is a bifoliate? With that many flowers, it got to be a bi-folate catt (or most of them are).

    Okay, here is the news on this bloom. I mistakenly thought it had 6 blooms, it turns out it has 10 blooms, five on each spike. It has small leaves and smells like citrus. I cannot be sure what the actual plant is because the tag is either buried down in the pot that is attached to the bench or it has fallen out. SO, I attach three more photos to help those who know, identify this cutie!

    The blooms are gorgeous, BD!!!!

    Well, they looks very much like my Lc. Angel Heart (Lc. Puppy Love x C. Penny Kuroda). However, Angel Heart has picotee edges so it probably does not belong to that grex. However, it could be a cross of the Puppy Love with something else similar to the line of Penny Kuroda that does not have splash petals. Any other suggestions?
    Cheers. Hoa.

    We have had this cattleya for several years, so it is not a new hybrid - if that information helps.

    Cheers!
