    Default Cattleya intermedia var. coerulea

    I'm hoping to get this one to Longwood next weekend. It looked pretty rough there last year. I seem to have made it happier by mounting it on driftwood. The pictures only show 3 of the 6 buds it has so far this year.

    Default intermedia var coerulia blooming in MA also

    Three pictures, a closeup, one of the plant, and one including a different kind of cat named Lucy.

    Interesting that they really are blooming at the same time. The last bud on mine just opened a couple days ago. They open with the petals a greenish white and then the color gradually shifts to a very very pale pink or lavendar.
