    Complicated name for a complicated looking stunner. The pink 'wobbly' petals are pretty cute.

    Kifr, yours appears to have a lot more of the yellow (caramel) color. I guess that is difference between the two blooms. I really like the shape and texture of this slipper. I can look at it for hours. - (or maybe I am a big procrastinator..heheh)

    Another esquirolei (bad pic and flower)


    In my opinion, BD's hirsutissinum is one of the most beautiful I have seen, with a more hairy flower than var esquirolei. Shape is excellent.

    For me, this is not a season paph because of its hairy texture and colors; it looks like winter clothes, that confirm this species is so special

    Both are pretty. I like the more yellow look of Kfir's but the subtleness of the colours in Bruce's is really pretty too. Ahhhh I can't choose; I'll choose both

    Wow, all great looking hirsutissimum!!

    I guess I better join in and show off mine too. Mine finished blooming last month, huge plant with only one flower.


    I prefer the color of the one you have, Lebouc. The petals are brighter.
