    Got this one from Arnold Klehm. I chose it for its flower shape and compact growth habit: tip to tip leaf span is just under 12 inches.

    Not particularly large for a standard complex, but it is big compared to the leaf span. Approximate flower measurements are:
    NS: 10cm
    DW: 8cm
    PW: 4.5cm

    They are called Complex Paphs for a reason. There are probably 15 plants in its background.

    The cross is Hampshire Harvest X Nulight. Its pedigree appears to go back at least 11 generations and includes in its lineage: Winston Churchill, Hellas twice, Valwin, Danella, and Gwen Hannen three times.

    I have a Ruth Wright x Nulight in bud. I guess Mr. Klehm made this cross as well?
