Paphiopedilum Wössner China Moon (hangianum x armeniacum) has to be among my favorites!
A few including this 4th seedling to bloom have all been very good.
These are also mildly fragrant, which is nice.
Also, I just love sunny yellow flowers 😍

Such a great cross. I've seen many get awarded as nice as yours.

I would say they are midway between the two parents. Definitely larger than typical armeniacum. Longer and wider leaves.
I do have one with short leaves but then the width is much greater than typical armeniacum.
The scent is similar to hangianum. All the hanginaum primary hybrids I have bloomed share this same base scent. The best smelling one has been Shun-Fa Golden (hangianum x malipoense) where sweet citrus tone is very much pronouced. I guess that comes from malipoense influence.
