Blooming in 2019.
paph Haur Gih Lucky
(paph gigantifolium x anitum).
I think there's almost something menacing about the flowers! They way the petals curl back together at the bottom encircling the pouch. I like it though! I wonder what a cross with a nice wide spreading Roth would look like?
That is just wonderful. Love the tall spike and the flower presentation in particular.
Very very nice. What a good result!!!
Love the personality it has !!!
Wow, I'm fascinated!
Have seen that cross for the first time, and it went right to the top of my wishlist!
How long took it to bloom?
Tall spike, big and colourful flowers, good shape - altogether a very successful and impressive cross.
Two great plants that produce fantastic offspring......gorgeous result!
Paph Wössner Giganitum. Once again beautiful.
Not sure where you got your name for the cross. RHS has this listed.
I looked up your name for the cross. The pollen parent was straight adductum. In this case anitum was one parent. So you should call it Wössner Giganitum.
that is stunning!!!
Nice plant and flowers.
Kew looks after species names, and lists anitum as a variety of adductum. So Paph adductum var. anitum.
RHS does not listen to Kews advice and looks after hybrid naming.
RHS names gigantifolium X anitum = Wössner Giganitum, while gigantifolium X adductum = Haur Jih Lucky
It is long time to wait for blooming. I do not know exactly time. Several year to ten or more. Other plants still waiting. At least six years maybe.
According RHS, you are right. I do not know all of the stories. Thank you.
Is it right?
gigantifolium X adductum (var. anitum) = Haur Jih Lucky 16/07/2012
gigantifolium X anitum = Wössner Giganitum 29/03/2015
Whatever, it is gigantifolium X anitum.
And it seems that I can not edit #1.
Another one. Blooming in 2019 too. And I do not know why they are different.
Love that dark dorsal!
