    Smile Paph villosum In Bloom

    I bought this April 2016. It has about 5 growths with one now in bloom. At first, I wasn't sure it was a villosum when it first was opening. But now I feel pretty certain that it is villosum. First time blooming it.

    Today is the first day it is open so I think it will open up more.

    Nice shots. This seems to be the villosum season - saw a lot of them blooming at a nursery recently.

    I was able to get this info on this Paph villosum. The seller agreed that this villosum flower is smaller than most.

    It's lineage is:
    Paph. villosum ‘Candor XL’ x ‘Marriott Colorburst.'
