    The tag is as I've stated. How much color variation can a clone show? And how much can light impact a given bloom's color?

    I don't think I'm way far off, but I too was surprised it wasn't quite as blue. The throat didn't show the pinstripe of yellow, either. Just a broader yellow coloration. Certainly makes me wonder, but the tag was specific.

    I'll call the reseller and see what she knows of her supplier.

    the name is Cattleya Sea Breeze 'Blue Ribbon' HCC/AOS

    I don't get what the pre-occupation with coerulea?

    warneri and walkeriana have pink colour forms so it makes sense to get a pink flower....

    I have no problem - I love the flower!

    But the 'Blue Ribbon' award description states a lavender-bluish flower. If this is a clone of the awarded plant, I wondering how there can be so much, if it is so much, color variation.

    I am finding that with Paphs and phrags, the temperature when the buds are developing will have quite an effect on the colour of the flower... maybe it is the same with Catts.

    Hey Bench, it is the same with cattleyas. In general, the cooler night temps lend more colorful the blossoms, especially true with anything that has sophronitis in it's geneology.

    Dangit, I missed the guessing game. I would have failed anyway, but it would have been fun!

    not sure how I completely missed this thread til now. not that I'm much of a catt expert, although I do love the unifoliates. the double sheath was a dead giveaway--only labiata and warneri do that, and they bloom at different times of the year! walkeriana is, btw, typically a unifoliate, although is clearly isn't part of the "labiate" types. nobilior is the bifoliate.
