    Like a dark mini roth type. Dark even with the flash on the camera. 2nd blooming, but 1st for me. The entire plant is about 12 or 13 inches wide.

    Wilheminae is such a good species to downsize the plant to manageable foot print while also darkening the flowers. These are nice and dark.

    The flowers are really neat and eye catching. I suppose I would prefer to see 3 or 4 flowers on the spike, but I know that's hard to get considering the parentage.

    Thanks all!

    I would hope for more blooms as it gets larger, but I'm not familiar with this little one, so I don't know how many to expect per spike. It's cute but compact. I thought the petals might have more of a twist based on some other ones I've seen, but this has about a half twist at the most.

    Now I need to go look up Paph. William Ambler.

    Thanks for posting. I have a couple of seedlings of this cross. Nice to see what I am waiting for.
