Lc. Floralia's Azul 'Sandra' AM/AOS x Cattleya amethystoglossa coerulea 'Blue Sky'
(Photo shows a first bloom seedling).
The first parent is a free flowering compact grower with oversized blooms. The species amethystoglossa will add a cluster-style bloom habit and hopefully some blue and purple petal freckles. These are showing lush green foliage with semi-bifoliate growth habit. The first we have seen flower are various shades of blue-grey with a hint of spotting and nice lip coloring. Great fragrance!
