I still remember the first time I saw a Laelia Purpurata, the Queen of the Brazilian Laelias. They are stunning and come in a variety of colors and tones. At one time in my life I used to visit Brazil a lot and purchased a few. When I got back from my vacation, these four were in flower. They may not be the best examples of that species and some are past their, but you can see how pretty they are.
