Cattleya Memoria Robert Strait 'Islander Delights' AM/AOS (5.5" pot blooming size)
Temporarily out! This compact grower is an attention grabber with 5 inch flat flowers that are white with a bold purple flare on each segment and a wide open purple lip. They are also sweetly fragrant. The plants are right at about 12 inches tall, with a closely spaced growths each topped by a single arching leaf. In general, the blooming season favors summer, though it can occur at other times as well, especially if grown under LED lights. Because one parent of this orchid is C. walkeriana, which has thick roots, we have potted these in a coarse mix for improved drainage. They are nice full plants with 2 or more active leads.
