    Default Paph Claire De Lune 'Iilsa'

    Here's another of the maudiae-type Paphiopedilum.

    Paphiopedilum Claire De Lune 'Iilsa'


    There is also a famous clone of this hybrid which has been awarded. I think Jason (JMoney) has posted it previously.

    First flowering of this plant for me after purchasing it two years ago. Seems to grow alright, though I think it prefers the warmer months to winter (as many of us do).

    cheers

    Looks so nice, Tim! Well done! The foliage is just as lovely as the beautiful bloom.

    Cheers,

    very nice and crisp! the famous green & white clair is 'Edgard Van Belle', although I have the say that the foliage on yours looks *identical* to that on EVB (which has a distinctive pattern). makes you wonder if it might be the same...might be worth checking out, especially if your flower is massive enough to be the famous cultivar.
