Today I visited the nursery of my friend Franz Glanz in Unterwössen in the south of Bavaria in Germany. I found there 2 interesting vinicolored hybris of Paph. rothschildianum in bloom.



Paphiopedilum Wössner Black Dream
Wössner Firedance X rothschildianum



Paphiopedilum Gaulois 'Wössen'
Goultenianum X rothschildianum

I had not a good background for the pictures so I could not make optimal pictures, but I hope you can enjoy the pictures.

With best greetings

I had the pleasure to see them both last weekend when Franz presented them for judging. The Woessner Black Dream received a SM, the Gaulois a BM from the D.O.G. judging panel.
I liked that Woessner Black Dream for the strong contrast in the dorsal and its shape which was pretty good for roth x vini breeding.

The Gaulois reminded me of the lung of a guy who has been smoking this brand for a couple of decades. It's been quite black.

Interesting! Did that plant have mottled leaves? Mine has green leaves and
is a large plant.

Seriously dark! I imagine they might be more impressive in person, the background as you indicated probably does not show them off to their best advantage.
