Default Paph. Ashburtoniae (barbatum x insigne)

Old primary hybrid that has opened its very first flower. It's not completely opened yet, but I thought it was so nice looking that I wanted to share it with you.

I won this division at an auction, held on the Swedish orchid forum I'm a member of, last year. I was sooo happy when I did, since I had fallen in love with it when the seller showed a pic of its mother plant.

I had forgotten how dark the dorsal was, so that was a very pleasant surprise.

I really like this primary, since it seems to be relatively easy to grow and bloom.

Here it is, enjoy!

Presents itself very nicely. I definitely like the way the petals are held. Very nice!

There's something about barbatum primaries... pure essence of Paph.

Wow! I haven't seen this hybrid. I love the colors and the shape of the petals.
