New Cattleya leopoldii

A week and half ago I went to the Cal-Orchid greenhouses in Santa Barbara.  James Rose, the owner, grows great orchids.  More on the trip later.   One of the benches was full of C. leopoldii seedlings, many in bud.  James had grown them all from seed.  He was planning on blooming them all to pick the best ones for breeding but he parted with one that I took home - one of six plants I bought.  Here it is in bud.
