    Default Cattleya Color variation or mislabel

    Wanted to share this bloom with everyone and I am also a little perplexed about the color I have and the lighter colors I see on the web.
    Is there a Cattleya expert out there that can say for sure this is a Blc. Mahina Yahiro Ulii or have I mislabeled it or possible bought it mislabeled?

    This bloom is 5 1/4 inchs across and there is another bud behind it that is not opened yet. To me this is the quintessential Cattleya!

    Name:  Blc. M. Hina Yahiro Ulii02-adj3.jpg

    That is stunning. I agree it is the bloom shape I think of when I hear the word 'orchid'.

    Cheers,

    'Ulii' is a specific clonal name and said bloom, while beautiful, is not the clone 'Ulii'. It could be a Mahina Yahiro..but have a different clonal name or no clonal name at all.

    Beautiful, but a NOID at this point.

    Nope! It is too dark for BLC. Mahina Yahuro 'Ulii'. Kinda looks like Pot. edwin Arthur Hausermann, except that does not have a red lip. similar to Memorial Crispin rosales, or closer to BLC Magic of Hashima 'Valcano Queen'. after you have looked those up on the internet and compared bloom photos, you can see why it is so hard to identify.

    Could be a Blc Magic of Mishima variant, but the petals are not "neon" enough. It's missing the magic.
    There are several catt hybrids now that have similar lip patterns so its hard to identify just by the lips.
