Here are some recent cattleyas in bloom.

Cattleya labiata f. coerulea

This one blooms freely throughout the year. Has a nice lotion like fragrance. 4 Blooms on a spike. Another sheath on the way.






Cattleya lueddemanniana f. alba

This one always blooms Nov-Dec. A little wonky. A light rose-ish fragrance.




Cattleya jenmanii

First time flowering on this one. Has a sweet gaskelliana like fragrance. Got significant cold damage... but decided to flower on two spikes!





Family portrait:




Cattleya Mark Jones x velutina

First bloom on this one. Has an intense rose fragrance with a hint of chocolate?



Cattlianthe Portia coerulea

First blooming on this one. Light lotion like fragrance.




Cattleya walkeriana

Beauties! I think the coerulea labiata and walkeriana are my personal favorites, but they're all quite fulfilling to bloom out, I'm sure.

All are very attractive. But the C. labiata is my favorite. Excellent shape on that one, and the colors are superb. I also am fond of rabbits--which, in turn, are very fond of my roses.

Thanks, the C. labiata has flowered a few times and I think it's really starting to pick up. The others were mostly the very first blooms on seedlings Ive had for a few years and hopefully they improve with subsequent flowerings.

As for the rabbit (or rumors of voracious rats in the area) are clearing out my young fruit trees over night. They never eat the tree to a killing point so I've somewhat let them be. Whatever it is seems to like my blueberry bushes and the sour citrus.

Those are all nice.

I have a Portia coerulea 'Mrs. Carl Holmes' in bloom now. Unfortunately the thrips got started before I got here to do my fall spray program and a couple of the flowers are missing a few pieces.

BTW- I give that walkeriana an "A+"

And now we have Cattleya José Martí open. It's floofy, frilly, and fragrant. A lovely hybrid! It isn't doing well for me... but been hanging on
