Because all three have been in bloom this winter, I thought it might be interesting to show Paph Orchilla and its parents. I'm not certain that these cultivars are the actual parents, but Orchilla came from a cross of these two hybrids.

It is interesting that even though Redstart is somewhat open, Orchilla is even rounder and fuller than Paeoney. Both Paeoney and Orchilla are fairly good parents for breeding reds. When bred to vinicolors they work a little better than Winston Churchill, in that there is not quite as many deformed flowers.
Nice to see all three together.
Thanks

I agree, very interesting.

I have an Orchilla x delenatii, but it's not bloomed yet. I think it should be an interesting flower.

Great to see a Paeony that isn't cuppy....When I had my Paeony "Regency", it never fully opened...always somewhat cuppy.....I've seen many photos of it that way as well....take care, Eric

Orchilla as parent

Orchilla is an excellent paph but rarely makes a good parent. A cross I wouldn't normally buy is Orchilla x Goultenianum but somehow I finished up with one. If I can work the photo up load properly I'll show you the pic.
