(Cattleya percivaliana x Laelia anceps)
A primary hybrid between the Mexican species Laelia anceps and the Venezuelan species Cattleya perciviliana. As expected the form of both the plant and flower reflects a balance between the parents' traits: the flowers shape and substance resemble Laelia anceps while Cattleya perciviliana imparts fuller flowers and a shorter spike habit. Temperature Tolerant. February blooming.
