Phragmipedium Robert Palm, besseae x czerwiakowianum, usually blooms in the spring, and did this year, so this is a second blooming for 2019. The color is a bit more peachy than the pic shows.robertpalm1119.jpg

A trade with a friend. This was actually made with the yellow form of besseae; unfortunately (divided last year) it is not yet divisible at this time. I can put your name on the tag but it may be a couple years yet.

Yay besseae hybrids! Thanks for sharing. It's too dark for a flavum cross. ???
Actually, when the first flavum hybrids bloomed, everyone was disappointed that there was very little, if any, indication in them they were from the flavum variety. It is often not a very influential parent, more frequently in the next generation. This is a little peachier in irl, but as for the darkness, it is is a fairly pastel flower.
