Yesterday we went to the annual Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden. This was my first time there and my first orchid show and it was lovely. Quite a few Paphs were on display including a bunch of big boy hybrids, a couple that I would love to have (P. St. Swithen and P. Ledouxiae), and this beautiful unidentified "Species Orchid." Can anyone tell me the species? Thanks.

It is a very complex hybrid...sorry we cannot ID it, however I think its got a nice colour. Sorry I giggled a little when you asked.

Complex my ass. You guys are very quick to dismiss the fact that it might be a NEW species. Ever think of that? A little known fact is that St. Louis has many endemic Paphiopedilum species. I believe this may be a photograph of the frm. flavum of Paph. frigginbigdorsal, probably the best name ever, IMHO.





that was fun. I'm done now.

I suspected it was no species I could find in any source I knew and was mis-identified. I sure is purty though. I thought the Paph. Yankeessuckola was solid brown.
