    Hey, I thought I had posted all my pictures...

    Guess Not!!!

    Another of my yellows from the group purchase I made this last summer.

    Paph Via Sombrilla ‘God’s Gift’ x Via Vulcan Verde
    Yerba Buena x Honda Hall = Via Sombrilla

    I think the little rufflies just make the flower, even cuter than a catt!!!!

    It was in bloom when I got it last Summer. I do not recall exactly how large it was, 2.5 - 3 inches seems to be about what it may have been when I block off that distance on a ruler. It was one of the larger (largest?) paph flowers I have had though.

    I just did a next level search on the parentage and those 8 plants are all at least primary hybrids too. This is one complex dude.

    nice golden colours and ruffles. The pouch look a little wrinkly, was this just before the flower dropped?

    Yes, that is true. As stated it was in bloom when I got it and one day I realized I needed a pic of it. Hopfully a nicer picture next year!!!
