An enchanting flower that visitors to our nursery can't help but admire! These large blooms are vibrant rosy pink, and the broad white and rose lip has a fringed edge. This flower is more pink, and less purple, than its half sibling, Brassocattleya
Cordelia, with whom it shares Rhyncolaelia digbyana
as a parent. The other parent of Brassocattleya
Calypso, Cattleya bicolor
, is what gives these plants their outdoor hardiness. Plant eighteen inches tall. . Temperature Tolerant. May blooming.
