Cattleya Hybrids

Flower

Cattleya Little Leopard (Cattleya aclandiae ×amethystoglossa)
Family Orchidaceae
Abbreviation C.
Common Name Chocolate Box Orchid
Etymology
Cattleya Named after Sir William Cattley, 19th century English plant collector who is the first to successfully grow and flower a Cattleya labiata.

  See also:  Cattleya

Cattleyas were known as the chocolate box orchid because their large flowers used to graze the cover of chocolate boxes. Today, more compact hybrids that grow cooler are more popular.
