    Default Paph. Saint Swithin 'Kinglet' HCC/AOS

    a division that probably originated from Tonkin Orchids. background color is on the yellow side (some St. Swithin have the white background of philippinense).





    Registered in 1901, Paph. Saint Swithin is perhaps the quintessential Coryopedilum hybrid. It truly combines the best features of each parent, from the large, boldly-striped dorsal and flower presence of rothschildianum, to the long dark petals and vigor of philippinense. It is no wonder then that the grex has withstood the proverbial test of time, amassing over 100 AOS quality awards in the process. The cultivar 'Kinglet' was awarded a 75 point HCC in 1992. Paph. Saint Swithin is a vigorous grower under standard multifloral paph conditions: bright diffuse light, even moisture, and warm temperatures with a cool winter rest.

    Beautiful! Is the yellow background or white most preferred? I don't believe I have seen the more yellow background before. It really is stunning.

    Cheers!

    thanks all! I use a canon powershot s80 with a velvet background. Ideally you would use natural light without flash (with probably an SLR) but I'm stuck with some flash bounce-back.

    I don't know if a certain background color is necessarily preferred--although I do like the ones with the white background, that's a nice contrast.

    the petals are almost 7", and the natural spread and vertical spread are both about 7" as well. a few cultivars have the petals straight out like roth and those are very impressive, since the petals tend to be longer than straight roths.
