C. Irene Holguin 'Brown Eyes' AM/AOS
(C. Astral Beauty × C. J.A. Carbone)
This classic standard cattleya was registered in 1969 and has very large lavender flowers with great shape. The fragrant flowers have a darker lip and dark yellow "eyes" in the throat. These plants are mericlones of the awarded 'Brown Eyes' clone. We have had this clone in our stud collection for many decades and is always such a show when it blooms.
(About 2+ years from blooming size.)
