    Default Paph. Lynleigh Koopowitz PHOTO

    (malipoense 'Empress' x delenatii 'Bubblegum')

    wonderfully fragrant, which is really a bonus with paphs. this grex tends to have pretty floppy petals, though.



    Registered in 1991, Paph. Lynleigh Koopowitz was part of the first wave of hybrids utilizing the sensational Chinese Parvisepalums, and it remains one of the finest to this day in terms of combining the best features of its parents. Paph. malipoense contributes the inflated pouch, overall flower shape, and tall 20+" stems, while Paph. delenatii cancels out the greens and leaves behind the porcelain-white background color. One of the most salient features of this hybrid, however, is the striking "raspberry-jam" staminode, which may or may not include some yellow as well. Lynleigh Koopowitz is also one of the rare fragrant paphs, and coincidentally enough actually smells like raspberry jam or raspberries & cream! This delightful fragrance arises from the combination of the raspberry scents of malipoense with the citrus essences of delenatii, and is an added bonus to growing this unique hybrid.

    raspberries & cream! most LK will be fragrant, but some more than others. never overpowering; you have to stick your nose in there, but it is very pleasing.

    I love this cross.... this plant was what made me realise that the Chinese parvisepalum's labellum do not really look like toilet bowls... or at least that looking at the plant at different angles... preferably not from the top (makes them look like toilet bowls)... shows the beauty of the pouch!

    That is so nice! And once again, thanks to Jason for adding another paph to my wish list!

    Seriously, thanks for always posting information about the blooms you put up here. I really feel like I learn so much from your postings!

    Cheers!

    Beautiful bloom, Jason!

    This parvi hybrid is one of my most favorite orchids. The delicious rasberry scent alone is enough for me to put it on my must-have list and the flower of this cross is exceptional as well. It does look like it has a glob of rasberry jam sticks to the flower! I have to say, Timmy has a point, the labellum does look like the toilet bowl!!! Hehhehehhehe! I have two plants of this cross. They bloomed previously and I hope they will bloom soon with their new growths!
    Cheers. Hoa.
