Default Cattleya perrinii ‘Waterford’

I received an FCC from the American Orchid Society for this plant at the Mid-Atlantic judging center in November:



Here is a second inflorescense at home in the greenhouse:

She’s real pretty. How old is the plant?

The shape and colours are definitely superb here. Congratulations on receving an FCC for this. A more than tremendous result.

The shiny front lobe and the flourescent look of the column is really appealing. Also the long slender sepals.

A real privilege to be able to see such an elegant flower. It's wonderful.

DirtyCoconuts - I’ve had this plant for a number of years.
SouthPark - Sadly, the flowers don’t last long and they bruise easily. The fragrance is musky like gardenias.

Thanks for mentioning those details about the lifetime of the flower. That's quite ok! It's a privilege for us to be able to enjoy seeing this flower - pretty much forever, thanks to capturing its beauty in the photographs. Excellent shots!!!

Very nice to hear about its fragrance too! Nice.
