C. Minucia (C. warscewiczii coerulea x loddigesii coerulea)
(C. warscewiczii var. coerulea x C. loddigesii var. coerulea 'House of Blues' AM/AOS)
Cattleya warscewiczii is a large Colombian species also known as Cattleya gigas. The flowers of the coerulea form are baby blue with a much darker blue lip and yellow throat. C. loddigesii var. coerulea has upright inflorescences topped with multiple blue-lavendar flowers with a nice yellow throat. We expect the introduction of loddigessii to bring a some-what smaller stature to the offspring and hopefully increase flower count and saturation of color within the flowers. This should produce some beauties!
