This uncommon species gets its name from the Sao Fidelis Mountains near Rio de Janeiro, the location where it was first discovered. The flowers of this compact plant are about 3.5 inches across, lavendar-pink with an unusual purple cast, and a distinctive ruffled lip that ends in a point and has a white center.
This species' distinctive blooming habit produces arching to cascading stems with flowers opening tilted upwards; a great plant for a hanging basket. Most also have a pleasantly sweet fragrance!
Like many on the Brazilian Cattleyas this species is light-loving and resilient, even in seasonal temperatures down to freezing, making it well suited for outdoor growing alongside Cymbidiums, yet it should also do well indoors in bright conditions.
