Blc. Pamela Finney 'Big Bull' may be a horrible name, but the flower on this orchid is spectacular. The flower is 9.5 inche tall by 8 inches wide.  It is a cross between Lc. Irene Finney x Blc. Pamela Heatherington. Both parents are old-time cattleyas.

The Pamela Finney hybrid was created in 1964. At last year's International Orchid Festival, the big hybrid was named best Cattleya Alliance and appeared in the exhibit by the Orchid Society of Coral Gables. We have grown this plant for several years, and exclaim every time it flowers.
