Cattleya warscewiczii (The "Warscewicz's Cattley's orchid"), a labiate Cattleya, is a species of orchid.


It was first collected by J√≥zef Warszewicz in Colombia in 1848-49 and formally described by Heinrich Gustav Reichenbach in 1855. C. warscewiczii exhibits a typical Cattleya sympodial habit. Pseudobulbs are 8-16" (20-40 cm) long, unifoliate, cylindrical or cigar-shaped, grooved. Flowers are 7-11" (17.5-27.5 cm) across, largest in the genus, showy, fragrant. In culture the flowering is in summer on that year`s spring growth. Strong light and good air movement are required.
