Oh my goodness! Gorgeous! Worthy of anyone's wish list!
Wonderful, almost perfect round slipper orchid bloom, Geoff. I looked this one up to see if it had been named and it is not yet named. It is a very complex hybrid.
bred by my long-time acquaintances and friends who once ran a specialisty paph nursery in UK, moved to Florida, then back to UK, and handed the nurseruy on to the next generation ( who hardly know a slipper from an old boot .. but that's another story). Since they no longer run a nursery they have no interest in registering names, and whilst I am sure that they would happily allow me to register it, I have already named paphs for my wife, mother, etc. etc ( even - rather immodestly for myself )and don't intend to use it for breeding myself, so unless I successfully submitted it for an RHS award - in which case I would have to register it - there is no point in paying out good money just to name a local landmark or something !
