    Betty Bracey ‘Meadowlark’ , Freckles ‘Corky’ , and Hunter’s Point ‘San Francisco’ are all older awarded paphs, but they are all new to me. What is remarkable about each of these plants that have each been open for at least 3 weeks and the former 2 going on 5 weeks is the heavy substance they exhibit. I have a complex green/white, Kimura’s Present that is super nice and has heavy substance, but not compared to these guys, especially the Betty Bracey. I can see why these guy were awarded.

    Good to see that there older awarded cultivars are well kept. Great job in your custodianship. Hopefully divisions will be donated to a botanical garden for long term conservation.
