Lc. Puppy Love

How many of you remember Lc. Puppy Love? It is one of my all-time favourite Cattleyas, and I’ll never forget the first impression it made when I saw it blooming at Stewart Orchids. The parents in the breeding of Dubiosa (C. trianae x C. loddigesii) produce impressive heads of white flowers with a bit of lavender in the throat, and the 5-9 flowers are surprisingly long-lived up to 8 weeks. Laelia anceps ‘South Africa’ is a line-bred strain from Lorens Grobler of South Africa. Its exceptional shape, large flower size, and 4 flowers per stem make for a top-quality anceps. This re-make promises to deliver pink flowered Puppy Loves with strong arching inflorescences displaying 5-8 well-arranged flowers.

Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description was written by Fred Clarke and details the expectation of this hybrid.
