    Default Paph. Robinianum (lowii x parishii)

    I bought this one 18 months ago and have waited patiently for it to create a spike and bloom ---- patience is NOT one of my virtues. LOL Finally in March a spike started to form and slowly develop. This week it seems that it exploded with energy and two of the three blooms have opened. I love it! It is now up there near the top of my list for Paphs. I am drawn to the color and form. This is the first bloom for this plant. It has two very healthy maturing growths plus the one in bloom. Hopefully it will soon send up some new growths. Would love to see it put on a real show.

    I think I'm in love .... I have always loved lowiis most, and seldom liked the primary crosses made with it, but this is stunning, Bill. Do you think you could pm me with the vendor's name?

    Just fabulous! Great growing!
