C. Berlin Spirit (C. x dolosa coerulea x C. mossiae coerulea)
This hybrid has been made between two very nice coerulea forms of C. dolosa and C. mossiae. C. mossiae is a species from Venezuela and has fragrant baby blue flowers with broad petals and a hint of yellow in the throat. The lip is lighter blue with only a small amount of darker blue veining. Cattleya dolosa has been classified as a naturally occurring hybrid between C. loddigesii and C. walkeriana and also as a separate species over the years. The coerulea form is quite nice. We are expecting to see some lovely coerulea offspring.
