    Very nice Grace.

    It's my understanding that vinicolor means the entire flower is purple. Anyone else know what makes a vini a vini?

    The hallmark of vinicolor Paphs. is a very dark wine-red color. Yours looks more typical of what is called coloratum.

    To illustrate, below is a vinicolor Paph. I posted recently.
