(P. Hsinying Algon X P. charlesworthii '#7')
This cross combines a spotted mahogany complex hybrid onto a
great species. Hard to say how much the Paph. charlesworthii will
shine through, we hope a lot. Husky plants should bloom this winter/spring.
Single growth plants with 9-14" leafspan, 3.25" pot.
Paphiopedilum Prince Edward of York
(P. sanderianum 'Show Shan' X P. rothschildianum 'Hulk'
A wonderful primary hybrid between two multifloral species- the long petaled
(up to three feet!) Paph. sanderianum, and Paph. rothschildianum,
king of Paphs, with a horizontal spread sometimes exceeding one foot.
Blooms in spring to summer with three to five well-marked, stately, statuesque,
imposing flowers with long, dangly, vertical petals. A must have! Single
growth plants with 7-9" leafspan, 3.25" pot.
(P. Vanguard 'Stars & Stripes Forever' AM/AOS X P. niveum
This hybrid is a look-alike for Paph. Woluwense (Paph. rothschildianum
X Paph. niveum), but adds a needed dose of bloomability with the
Paph. glaucophyllum in Paph. Vanguard (Paph. rothschildianum
X Paph. glaucophyllum). Expect two to three semi-simultaneous flowers
with white to off-white background and strong dark burgundy spots and
markings. Blooming size, 8-10" leafspan, 3.25" pot.
(P. Winston Churchill 'Indomitable' FCC/AOS X P. InCharm
Paph. Winston Churchill 'Indomitable' is one of the most famous
complex Paphs with its cherry, honey, and mahogany petals and pouch and
white dorsal sepal spotted dark burgundy. To this day, one of the best
spotted complex hybrids! Here, it is crossed onto a modern complex white
hybrid with strong Brachypetalum influence. The expectation is white with
a heavy saturation of pink to burgundy overlay and variable amounts of
spotting. Should give very nice, long lasting, pretty flowers (one per
inflorescence) in late winter or spring. Blooming size, 8-10" leafspan,
Paphiopedilum Angel Hair
(P. Saint Swithin 'Hsinying' X P. sanderianum '#7')
Very similar to Paph. Prince Edward of York, but in lighter colors.
Sometimes these have longer petals too. Elegant, must have. 9-11" leafspan,
(P. Pine Glow X P. vietnamense 'October Bride')
Paph. Pine Glow is a Cochlopetalum hybrid (Paph. Pinocchio
X Paph. glaucophyllum) resembling the species in that section.
Gives several flowers successively over many months to years. Paph.
vietnamense is behaving like Paph. delenatii in hybridization,
but doesn't tend to hide color and, in fact, lends more intense coloration.
Expect flowers similar to Paph. Gina Short, Paph. Deperle,
etc but heavier, darker pink overlay. Update: the first have bloomed and
they blow Gina Short and friends out of the water! Big! Bold pinks! Two
to three flowers with good lasting qualities! Fuzzy! They are a little
wacky in the form department, but still very nice. Get one of these- you'll
like it! Blooming size, 6-10" leafspan, 2.25" pot.
Paphiopedilum Spring Moonbeam
(P. Luna Jewel 'The Dorse' X P. sukhakulii forma aureum
Big, nice green Maudiae-type hybrid that strongly resembles huge, albino
sukhakuliis. Previously bloomed, 5-7" leafspan, 3.25" pot.
Paphiopedilum Mount Avalon
(P. Mount Toro 'Stoned' X P. Avalon Mist 'Sunshine')
These are neat. Resembles Paph. Honey, but certainly different,
and the Paph. stonei influence is usually apparent in the dorsal
speal and petals. Surprisingly compact plants. Previously bloomed, 3.25"
(P. Deperle 'Pristine' X P. Wellesleyanum 'Golden Blush')
These look a lot like Paph. Deperle, but have THICK substance and
have more freckles. In bloom, 3.25" pots.
(P. philippinense '#44' X P. primulinum forma flavum)
A classic multifloral by successive primary hybrid. Very nice flowers.
Vigorous plants. Previously bloomed, multi-growth, 3.25" pots.
Paphiopedilum Gina Short
(P. delenatii 'Morning Pink' X P. Pinocchio 'Popples')
These have been mostly white, so they look a lot like Paph. Deperle.
In bloom, 3.25" pots.
Paphiopedilum Nike's Sunny Delight
(P. Avalon Mist 'Sunshine' X P. Pinocchio forma flavum
Well, these look like Paph. primulinum honestly. Very vigorous.
In bloom, 3.25" pots.
Paphiopedilum primulinum fma. flavum
('Flutter' X 'Surprise')
A couple of these are currently in bloom. 3.25" pots.
