    Default Paph. Lynleigh Koopowitz

    delenatii 'Bubblegum' x malipoense 'Emperor'



    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.

    I agree with you Tami. The information Jason posts is always very helpful.

    If you see posts you like, you can rate them or even give the member who posted reputation points by clicking on the scales in his or her post. It is a nice feature of the software that I hadn't really paid much attention to, but others seem to have already figured it out. [/off-topic 4 a moment]

    Sweet flower! Sounds like a few people have these in bud/bloom right now - do they bloom at a certain time of the year or whenever the new growth matures?

    they bloom as new growths mature but for me it seems spring/summer is a popular time.

    Thanks, Jason. Mine has an older, previously bloomed growth and one that's almost mature size so I'm trying to figure out how long I'll have to wait for that one.

    That is a gorgeous bloom, it looks like raspberry ripple ice cream. (Not that I am obssessed with food)

    Thanks for the info Jason
