Cattleya bowringiana variety alba
Cattleya bowringiana variety alba. This is a rare albanistic variety of the normally sparkling lavender C. bowringiana. Most of the albas out there that I have seen are actually semi-albas with a teensy bit of bluish-lavender in the throat. I suspect many if not most arose from selfings of C. bowringiana 'Tower Grove'.
