    Default Cattleya 'Dorothy Warne, tricolor'

    I acquired this lovely old girl on Sunday.
    Perhaps not the most open of flowers but a lovely scent and I do like the colours.
    She needs a bit of TLC and a repot when the flowers are done.
    I looked on the web and see she comes from an Orchid Nursery in Honolulu registered in the 1970S. If only they could talk I reckon they could tell some stories!
