Cattleya Mrs Mahler 'Fred Tomkins' AM/AOS
First bloom on Cattleya Mrs Mahler 'Fred Tomkins' AM/AOS. This is a hybrid of C. bicolor x C. guttata. An oldie, blooming for the first time for me on a small meristem. This was awarded way back in 1977. You would think someone would have remade this wonderful cross by now! Of course, the plants get kind of large...but, if you have space for a four foot tall plant, it's a beauty!
