    The first Paphiopedilum was a wardii I got from A World of Orchids in Kissimmee, Florida in 1996. The first picture is from 2014 when I won Best Grown Paphiopedilum at the Denver Orchid Society show.

    This photo is from a division that just bloomed. The new ones are nicer now but this one has sentimental value.

    This is the nicest wardii I have seen. I like it far better than any “new ones.”

    Thanks... I’m rather fond of it too. I have a few dozen seedlings from a selfing I did. They should be available in the near future.
