Brassocattleya Caprice in bloom

Brassocattleya Caprice - Photo by Richard Lindberg

In bloom in Sonoma. Bc (or as the RHS likes to call it, Rhyncholaeliocattleya) Caprice is just lovely. The picture doesn't do it justice. The flowers are large and showy and fragrant. The grab the eye at once.

This cross was registered in 1981 by Sea God Nursery. This is Raymond Burr's nursery and it is local. It is not an active nursery now, but the collection still exists and can be seen by appointment. A lot of people around here have a plant or two and especially prized is one of Raymond Burr's original crosses.
