    Default Paph delenatii May 2010

    A cute pink slipper orchid, this paph is one I got from Jason (Jmoney) a member here in the forum. He sent it along with another paph that he was trading on Orchidbids.

    Isn't that Paph the state flower of Minnesota? If so, I left a few of them in my wildflower garden when I sold my home there. Guess I should have dug them up...Humm. Betty...now in Texas :-(

    No, the MN state flower is Cyprepedium reginae. Paph. delenatii is from Vietnam. But they are both lovely .

    Thanks for correcting that for me, Orchidlady. My husband bought them at a nursery, and was told that they were the state flower. Still, I guess I should have dug them up...However this way they are left for someone to enjoy. I think that I'm O.K. with that. Betty :-)
