    Default Paph. Maudiae 'The Queen' AM-AOS

    a classic cultivar, still one of the best of its type.





    One of the oldest types of paphiopedilum hybrids is none other than the ubiquitous green-and-white "albino" Maudiae-type paphs. Certain plants have been in cultivation for the greater part of the 20th century, although three particularly impressive clones have established themselves as the crème de la crème of green-and-white Maudiae-types: Maudiae 'The Queen', Clair de Lune 'Edgard Van Belle', and Alma Gavaert 'Madame Maurice Mertens'. These cultivars are characterized by their ease of growth and their absolutely enormous flowers that can measure up to 6" in natural spread. As a result, each carries an AM/AOS to its credit, and divisions of all three are relatively available today. It has been reported that all three clones are triploids, thereby explaining the massive flowers and the paucity of legitimate offspring.

    Paph. Maudiae 'The Queen' can be distinguished from Clair de Lune by its horizontally-held petals that lack warts on the faces of the petal blades, and from Alma Gavaert by its slightly wider petals.

    My wife loves the green and white paphs. I think I'll be showing her these pictures (hopefully followed by some shopping).

    Gorgeous looking flowers.

    Jason, you are correct with the triploid report, particularly with Maudiae "The Queen".
    There have been a number of offerings at time with it listed as a parent but unfortunately, its not been the true M "The Queen" that has been used.
    Not sure about the CdL or the Alma G as I know a few growers who have used the successfully.

    Any plant with the clonal name 'The Queen' has a lot to live up to, but yours does NOT disappoint. Nicely done.
