    Default Rlc. Burdekin Wonder 'Loredana'

    This was owned by a very long time friend who flowered it as a seedling & subsequently down the track, the plant received an award. My friend had to change growing areas & her Catts took a real beating so she gave them to me for rescuing (seems to be a thing people do to me). Anyway, 12mths later & to me surprise, this appears. It is actually better than this, but is actually close to being better than when it was awarded.
    Can't wait to see it flower properly..

    Yes Chris, two names synonymous with Cattleya breeding down here & now being displayed overseas, Burdekin & Dal's.
    These name prefixing a name registration have produced some of the best Catts & families seen. This of course depends on Judging & likes. This pink one, although not flowered to perfection is a prime example of the work done.

    One overseas clone that springs to mind is Burdekin Wonder 'Lakeland' !!!
