    Ah-hah! I knew it didn't look like any Fair-Maude I've ever seen. I have yet to see a fairreanum hybrid that did not show a strong influence from that species.

    I agree that it is probably Maudiae or something similar, lawrenceanum is very dominant in that flower, and it shows absolutely no trace of fairrieanum influence. Very nice, though, whatever it is.

    I have to agree as well, after you guys brought it up. Could it be an oddball of the batch of seedlings?
    BTW, my avatar is a Paph Maudiae 'Los Osos' Am/AOS cross. Your plant looks a lot like my avatar except yours has wider petals.

    I am an amateur, relying totally on what my grower tells me. I particularly contacted the grower on this one and the information I gave is exactly what he told me. I sent him the same picture that I posted here. I really don't care what she is, she is beautiful and a keeper! I'll let all of you experts debate while I enjoy her!

    That's the right attitude, Katie. It's a lovely flower. Remember that this grower, and most we buy from, do not grow the flowers from the original seeds, but buy flasks or seedlings from overseas, and have to rely on what the original grower tells them.

    That's genetic variation for you!

    Gorgoreous flower no matter which parent it takes after.
