My Paphiopedilum philippinense var roebelenii 'Coco' AM/AOC flowered with 3 spikes (16 flowers) this year including 6 flowers on one spike for the first time. The best this plant has ever flowered.

And who is this Coco deserving of having this orchid named in their honor? My loyal Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. An orchid worthy of his royal status. :)

Stunning! Well grown! We have a Cavapoo, would've gotten the pure Cavalier St Charles if it weren't for the shedding.

Thanks. We call them Cavoodles here. They are a very popular cross. It is amazing how variable they are. I have seen Cavoodles that just looked like Cavaliers from a distance while others just like Poodles and everything in between. Yes, the shedding is terrible. :)

Gorgeous Paph. and I don't even grow Paphs. I do grow a Cav. King Charles tri-color. Coco is such a sweetie.
They really "get you" with those soft spaniel eyes. Sally, my Cav., is excessively spoiled and so loving and
sweet.
