Cattleya tenebrosa, one of the most spectacular of the former Brazilian laelias, was first described by Rolfe in 1891. Most recently reclassified as a Cattleya. The colour range of Cattleya tenebrosa can vary from copper to yellow or anywhere in between. The species typically produces two or three, very large (over 20cm) flowers per stem.
These plants originated from a collector in Taiwan.
