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.SlipperFan said:For a complex, that is quite nice, Rob.
You gonna breed with it???
Here's a couple of ideas I've been toying with:Ed M said: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.
I think there is a link to (Orchilla x sanderianum) or something similar on Dr. Tanaka's website.littlefrog said: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.
