I can't research it that much from Iowa. Sitting near airport waiting for my sisters artival.
Hazel Boyd was always a hard plant to keep alive much less bloom. I don't recall it being much of a parent either!
Now I do remember Elaine Taylor coming out in the Krull/Smith catalog as being a deep ruby red color with a hint of purple. And the lip was even darker, velvety I recall. Kind of like Oconee 'Mendenhall' type lip.

On the web, Hazel Boyd was Jewel Box X California Apricot.
But google Elaine Taylor!! That plant looks an awful lot like Elaine Taylor. Agree?
I am at 98% now.

Lindsey, your mystery red Catt may have goofy wavy leaves, but it sure is gorgeous. My two Elaine Taylors that I have murdered were relatively small plants with flowers maybe a little over 2in. wide, and leaves maybe 6in long and not goofy. I'm not sure but yours looks like quite a big flower and large leaves. Pretty sure this is a picture of it, behind the purple Miltassia. Old pic from our 2013 Apopka trip.

Pretty ones there Prabhi. That first one, the Coerulea Catt is just wonderful.

@prabhisetty Prabhi, I found the reason your Dendrobium was not showing up, there was a dash missing in the numbers inside the lightbox. I added it and there is your Dendrobium now visible! Smiling
Lovely blooms! Lovey dubby

Dendrobium season continues in the OC. The first is a Dendrobium smilliae that I picked up at our last orchid club meeting:

Smilliae certainly made me smile. The little green dots reminded me of Leucojum petals - but prettier.

Patty, I'm saving my pennies ( not even going to Redland this year) so I will not be at the Tropiflora show. I think our orchid club is having their annual auction as well that weekend and I'm signed up to help.
