The beauty of hybrids


Jan. 8, 2015: Larry sent me this picture of a very pretty Cattleya that was blooming at Telly’s.

We immediately wanted it. The flower did not look familiar but the names on the plant tag looked oddly familiar. After a quick check, we discover that we   actually already have this hybrid. The flowers look vastly different, though!
