Though possibly not quite as widely hybridized as the Oncidium/Odontoglossum Alliance, the Cattleya Alliance of orchids is one of the most prolific genetic groups of orchids there are. Hybridizing between Cattleya and various other genera is the process that results in a large number of “intergeneric” orchids with exotically varied flowers on the market today. The genera of orchids which are collectively referred to as the “Cattleya Alliance” include Barkeria, Brassavola, Broughtonia, Cattleya, Cattleytonia, Dialaelia, Encyclia, Epicat, Epidendrum, Guarianthe, Laelia, Myrmecophila, Rhyncholaelia and Sophronitis and their many hybrids.
