    That is dark! Nice!

    I will have to dig around, but I have one that is dark and cool. It doesn't have the wonderful fairrieanum shape that your has, but it is dark. Let me look...

    Cheers,

    Default dark collection...

    I checked to see what dark paph we had in bloom and did not find much. Here are a few to add to this thread. I did not write down the names, but they are all dark paphs.

    My in-bloom dark collection for June 11, 2008:

    I totally agree...lovely !!!

    Nice collection of mauds Bruce and Kfir!

    I grow mostly multiflorals and very few Mauds. This I would say is my darkest
    Paph Sunset 'Alpha' which is more of a complex with Maud and charlesworthii in it's background



    oh I do have Paph Macabre which is on the darkish side
