    Would be nice to see a close up of the flower. Good flower number though.

    The green is cool and the size looks huge.

    Murray looks pretty darn good to me! Why do you feel Hannah is better?

    Maybe because Murray has narrower roth-looking petals...I do agree it's a VERY nice looking Saint Swithin.

    Eight years or so late. Anyone know if Paph. Saint Swithin 'Hannah' is available for sale in QLD? I recently found out that I know Hannah.... who is Don's grand daughter, which has led me to a search for this particular cultivar. Thanks all!

    Thanks for that comment Ozpaph! I really think you're right that Jim is probably the only one that has 'Hannah'. Definitely thankful that Jim has kept this cultivar going, and that it's still around! This is really excellent.
