    Two besseae

    Very pleased with how the flowers have improved on these as the plants have matured. The first, purchased as an unbloomed seedling, is from the OZ cross of 'Round Robin' x 'Blood Diamond' (NS 7.5cm). The second was grown from a flask acquired from HP many moons ago (NS 8.5cm).

    Paph Magical Venus

    Select division purchased last year from Tom (Fox Valley). Paph venustum x Macabre Magic. NS 12cm. Color break on this flowering but a reliable grower and bloomer for me.

    henryanum

    It's been open about 10 days. First blooming. I like the dorsal and petal angles and overall color. The position of the pouch ... not so much. Hanging on to it to see how next year's bloom turn out.
