    I wanted to share this cutie from Chuck Acker's breeding. This particular seedling was more vigorous than the rest and bloomed about 11 months out of flask. The rest of the flask is still growing.

    Nice dark coloring. Was the Fall River parent 'Purple Passion'?

    Thanks!

    Bob - you are correct. Fall River 'Purple Passion' was the parent.

    This is the second to bloom from this flask. I have two more in bud.

    I love this color. 20200514_184632.jpg

    Interesting range. I like this one better. Any plans to breed with it?

    That's going to be great on the 3rd bloom. I have one of these and I hope it looks as good as yours.

    I have no plans to breed yet. I had not been interested in breeding in the past but it is becoming more intriguing...

    Max, I will be interested in seeing how yours turn out.

    I love the deep rich texture and color of the second bloom. I have some of this cross from Chuck. But, no blooms yet.

    Beautiful! I’m A novice when it comes to paphs/phrags, had no idea there would be blooms from same flask that were so different from each other!

    Darlene, I love this cross, too!
    Of all the flasks I have gotten from Chuck over the last few years, this one, CA700, nka Phrag. Acker’s Rose River, might just be my favorite! My pictures are lousy, but I have bloomed out quite a few. The colors are all richly saturated, and they are wonderfully fuzzy and shapely.

    Here’s a couple of mine (the second one is still opening):
