My first multi flowering - just the one flower, but really pleased with the outcome.
Dimension for those interested - NS and petal length 15cm, Dorsal 6cm by 4cm wide, whole plant has a 70cm leafspan.
BTW - Does anyone know if this cross has a registered name? I can't find it listed with RHS or BlueNanta, I emailed the nursery it originally came from (via a private ebay seller) but have had no reply. Is it bad form for me to register it if no one has?

It's quite red and pretty.
See the RHS website for registration dos and donts.



Thanks. Yes, I already looked at the notes. They are hardly explicit, so I've sent them an email for some clarification.

I really like this as well. Cool petal stance and I like the adductum influence on the lip. Overall, and interesting outcome considering the parentage. Dark and colorful. It'd be nice to see it in a few years with 3 - 5 flowers.

Thanks for all the great comments. Looking forward to seeing it with more flowers in time.
The reds are darkening now to a burgundy colour mainly, plus the dark backdrop in the pics brings out the colours more. Here is a comparison on light background.

What happened to the inflourescence? Looks like it was gouged. Very nice outcome!!



Well spotted troy. Yes I won't be using these type clips again - under such tension I accidentally nicked the stem getting it in. Had me sweating on its development for a while but seems no harm done. #butterfingers

congratulations!
Who was the Duke of Burgundy?



Nobody - its a butterfly. Also a film about a relationship between two women (not called Isabel and Johanna sadly). Mainly I just thought it sounded good for a paph - like PEOY, but the right colour too.
