    Meon x Makuli - but using alba forms of both.

    However if anyone remade it with non-alba forms it would still have the - then - inappropriate name.

    I have one Paph called Emerald ( Maudiae x curtiss ) which I suppose was made with alba forms, but I bought one made with the ordinary oines - the only red/brown emerald in the world !

    Very fine bloom with a neat name, and oh so true about the flower arrangements. AL

    "Nice bench filler" is somewhat of an understatement - this is a really nice flower! I love the colors. Thanks for sharing it with us, Geoff.
