    I do know the name, Cattleya mossiae 'Willowbrook' FCC/AOS species. It is just a darker color from all internet photos and also the websites photo that i bought it from?... They all are deep lavender shades... I did read the willowbrook was among the darkest mossiae varieties. but cant find a photo with dark purple/ bright yellow..I was just wondering if anyone was growing a willowbrook and might recognize it, or if it is normal. possibly has frost damage from shipping?

    Great flower! I don't think you could get away with no shipping damage if the plant was in flower or the buds were well developed.
