C. Trufords Cat (C. dormaniana x bicolor)
(C. dormaniana 'Fat Lip' HCC/AOS x bicolor)
C. dormaniana is a compact-sized bifoliate cattleya species from Brazil with slender foliage. The awarded clone used in this cross has 3” rich bronze fragrant flowers with a very large magenta lip and prominent light magenta sidelobes. In crossing this with the large bifoliate C. bicolor, we will see the size of the plant increase but also hope to see a substantially increased flower count.
(About 2+ years from blooming size.)
