Cattleya coccinea, also known as Sophronitis grandiflora, is a plant in the family Orchidaceae, native to South America. It is described as follows in Paxton’s Magazine of Botany:
For so diminutive a plant, the size of the flowers is really extraordinary, and the stalk is made to curve downwards, apparently with the weight of the blossom. The colour is a rich cinnabar, variously tinted with crimson and orange, and pale orange or deep yellow in the centre. When in flower, the plant is not unlike a dwarf Catlleya, and this appearance, combined with the novelty of its colour in relation to that genus, makes it peculiarly interesting.
