Default C. violacea var. semi-alba 'Icabaru'

This is one of my favorite cattleyas in my collection. It is a mericlone that I received from a friend in Japan 4-5 years ago. The colors on the flowers are very striking.

I think this is the most beautiful Cattleya I've ever seen. I'll be looking out for it.
