    a tale of tails

    It struck me as interesting how similar these flowers are, but how different the petals are, so I took the time to investigate. The photo on the left is Les Dirouilles, which is Sorcerer's Apprentice x Leslie Garay. SA = longifolium x sargentianum. LG = caudatum x longifolium. The photo on...

    I purchased this from Hengduan Mountains Biotechnology in December of 2012 as a small seedling. I believe it was their second trip to the US. I also bought a flask from them at the same time and have one left that should bloom in about 2 years. This plant is a single growth with a leaf span...

    Wossner China Moon

    Bought this as a seedling about 5 years ago. It bloomed a year later with a slightly twisted flower, but I thought it looked promising. This is the second blooming and the natural spread is about 12 cm. It has been open for about 3 days, so it might get a little larger. If it were possible...

    Johanna Burkhardt

    Bought several of these from a grower in Hawaii about the same time all of the FCCs were being awarded. The consensus appears to be that the adductum parent was actually anitum, which is likely the case for this plant too, but I'm going with what the label says. The plant has a leaf span of...

    Fritz Shomburg from OZ

    I bought a flask of these just before they went out of business. I believe the kovachii had an FCC and the besseae was their "Mega" clone. This is the first to bloom and probably the only one that will bloom this year. The color is a little darker than some FSs, but it still has a little...

    Another Liberty Taiwan

    This is hangianum x micranthum "Rouget" FCC/AOS. I purchased a flask of these and have bloomed several. The color is always good, but the ones with the largest petals were floppy and the markings were less distinct. I have a few left yet to bloom, but I suspect I'm not going to get one with...

    Phrag Summer Sun

    This is Eric Young x Waunakee Sunset purchased as a small seedling. I saw the bud about a month ago, but was mostly ignoring it since it was a small plant with just a few leaves. NS = 10.5 cm. I am inclined to grow this for another year or two. Mike

    Paph Bryce Larkin

    This is Fumi's Delight 'Barbara Ann's Butterbowl' AM/AOS x micranthum 'War Eagle' HCC/AOS, out of a flask from Windy Hill Gardens. They have been very slow growers. The spread is about 9 cm. The edges of the petals are a little wavy and the colors muted. Otherwise, an interesting flower. Mike

    Paph Mem Larry Heuer

    This is malipoense x emersonii. The plant grows well and flowers easily, but the flower is not very special. However, this year it was sitting lower on the benches and I had a better view of the pouch. I thought you might be interested. Mike

    kovachii seedlings

    These are 10 weeks out of a flask from Chuck Acker. There were 25 seedlings and I split them into four roughly equal groups and potted them into different media. The one on the top left is Orchiata + perlite. The one on the top right is NZ sphagnum moss. The lower left is Promix HP + extra...

    Paph Genevieve Booth

    This is Mt Toro "SVO" AM/AOS x roth "Raja Kumis" FCC/AOS, purchased several years ago from SVO as a seedling. It is not awardable, but I keep it anyway because it is a nice flower and reliable bloomer. The flower has a spread of about 20 cm and the dorsal has a width of 4.4 cm. Mike

    Paph Booth's Strap Leaf

    Purchased from SVO four or five years ago as a large seedling, I now know how it got the name. The leaves are almost 40 cm long and 6.5 cm wide. The cross is Susan Booth "SVO" HCC/AOS x Saint Swithin "Black Rook". The flower spike is 60 cm long and the individual flowers have a natural...

    Tolumnia Golden Sunset "Lisa"

    I got this years ago from Hermann Pigors and received a CCM about 11 years ago. Like many plants it has its ups and downs, but this year's blooming looks pretty good. There are about 130 flowers on the plant. The flowers with the most white have been open the longest. Mike

    Red Lightning x Grande

    Purchased from Windy Hills Gardens years ago, it has been one of my most reliable bloomers. Flowers are about 15 inches from top to bottom. Sorry for the quality of the photo, but it is a gloomy day outside. Mike

    Catt schilleriana

    This was one of the best two out of the flask. This year it bloomed with nine flowers, but I have no shows coming up, so I didn't do any grooming. Mike
