Description 

This is, in our opinion, the best white Cattleya to come out of Thailand in recent years. Both parents are outstanding white Cattleya hybrids created in America. The pod parent, Blc. Elizabeth Hearn, is Blc. Nacouchee x Blc. Déese. The pollen parent, C. Gertrude Hausermann, has two of the most famous American Classic White Cattleyas as parents—C. Empress Bells and C. Bow Bells. The genetic composition of Blc. Siam White is 27% C. mossiae, 25% C. trianae, 22% C. gaskelliana, 11% B. digbyana, 6% C. dowiana, 5% C. warscewiczii, 4% other. B. digbyana in the background keeps the plant small in stature and imparts an amazing fragrance. Our friend in Thailand gave the clonal name ‘The King’ to the best of the cross in honor of King Rama IX (then King of Thailand).  This extraordinary clone has a compact growth habit, large, well-shaped white flowers with amazing fragrance. Award Quality. A must for any modern Cattleya collection. Highly Recommended.
