    Red face Paph. Winston Churchill 'red' x salty val HCC

    Well, I am a bit shocked at the flower! I was led to believe that it would be mostly white with some red spotting- More like the Paph. Salty Val that diane posted. Clearly the Winston Churchill was dominant.
    At first I was disapointed, but it is growing on me. I do like the spots on the top petal, but I still don't think I am going to become a bulldog paph. lover any time soon. -Meg

    It's lovely, I think that the Salty Val is actually quite dominant in that one. Very nice!

    I like the green dot ( actual term unknown ). It really catches my eye everytime I go into the room. I am starting to appreciate it's unusual qualities.
