For a complex, that is quite nice, Rob.
You gonna breed with it???
It was registered in 1962 by Ratcliffe (Paeony x Redstart), and has 59 first generation offspring, 81 total progeny (according to orchidwiz). 'Chilton' got an FCC/AOS in 1973. I think this is the clone used most in hybridizing.

Anyway, yes, I probably will if I find the right mate. *grin*

Rob, I've got a huge plant of Paph. Orchilla 'Chilton' here that I got from Merrit Huntington in 1986. I think it had ten flowers this past season. Its always flowered well, but I've never figured out what to breed with it.

Me either... Although I'll trade your plant for mine... *grin*

Still waiting for inspiration to strike.

A question from someonw who doesn't know much about Paph breeding and doesn't have the softwares programs to go look it up.
What happens if you breed this to a multifloral? Does it just get run over? Or could it impart some of the fullness of its segments to the cross?

Somebody has crossed it to sanderianum. Why I have no idea. Haven't seen the flowers though.

I don't know what happens when you cross a big complex to a multifloral... Not something I ever recall seeing.

Here's a couple of ideas I've been toying with:
1.Paph Sequin (Orchilla x sukhakulii) There's a link to a picture on this page:

2.Put this Paph (Impulse x leucochilum) onto Orchilla

I think there is a link to (Orchilla x sanderianum) or something similar on Dr. Tanaka's website.
