Lady Isabel x conco-bellatulum, but I believe conco-bellatulum is now called wenshanense. It reminds me in some ways of Rolfei, but is much easier to bloom. Looks like it is doing well in your care. Mike

RHS has now the one patent registered as P. Lady Isobel, because of the investigative efforts of Nickp here on STC.

Allow me to quote myself for further information:
Concerning the name I refer to Nickp's thread and the extensive story in his blog, where he describes, how he found the correct name for this grex (an interesting piece of orchid sleuthing) and the name of the remarkable lady in whose honour it was named...and had the RHS revise the name in the hybrid register accordingly - thus rectifying a more than 100 year old misspelling:
Paphiopedilum Lady Isabel/Lady Isobel
