    Default vini x roths PHOTO

    Hsinying Maru x rothschildianum

    for some reason, the dark vini x coryopedilums produce some of the very darkest flowers in the paph world. the coloratums usually will have much better form, but those fortunate enough to have the true vinis from these lineages can expect colors that border on pitch black.



    Amidst the incredible variety of shapes and colors in the paph world, the majestic long-petalled coryopedilums and the intense purple-black vinicolors remain among the most striking. It is no wonder, then, that these two lineages have been crossed to each other in hopes of creating the elusive multifloral vinicolor. This singular goal has, in fact, been accomplished with some degree of success. Typically only a small percentage of each vini x coryo cross will exhibit the telltale dark leaf base, but the flowers that these plants throw surely rank among the darkest of paphs. A significant percentage of flowers, however, are plagued by poor form, and most seem to lack the "grace" of the coryopedilum parent. Nevertheless, the best examples of this line are still treasured by the paph connoisseur for the large sweeping flowers, borne 2-3 at a time on mature plants, and the astonishingly dark coloration that often borders on true black.

    I really do like my roths & roth hybrids & mixed with some vini's certainly makes for an eye catching spectacle.
    Colour is fantastic .
    I have wondered what Paph Callo-Rothschildianum(callosum x roth) would look like ?

    I do find your write up such a treat Jason. Thanks.

    Honestly though, I don't know if I think this is pretty... certainly it is very striking... but kinda reminds me more like chocolate and I want to take a bite!

    Good information, Jason. Thanks! I agree with Tim though, I would not call this one pretty, but striking is a good descriptive word for it. The photo is amazing--BTW.

    Cheers!
