Cattleya lueddemanniana coerulea 'Michael' AM/AOS x '(Adriana x Irma Sofia)'
We have been waiting so long to be able to offer this species in the rare and highly coveted blue form. These plants are short growers, with squat but husky foliage. Even mature plants are rarely over 12" tall but that doesn't stop the amazing show of blooms in late winter and early spring. Well shaped blooms with blue grey petals and darker blue lip coloring, The petals may also show some darker grey venation which should be very interesting. No matter what shade of blue the scent will be luscious!
Plants are established in 2.5" pots, and growing well in douglas fir bark.
Unless otherwise stated, please understand that bloom photos show mature sized plants not what those offered currently look like.
