Purple paphiopedilum

Here is a picture of a hybrid Paph that we purchased last February at the Southern Ontario Orchid Society show at the Toronto Botanical Gardens. It was in bloom when we purchased it and it has bloomed for us again. Many of my species suffered during the past year in less than ideal conditions, specifically lack of air circulation. The hybrids seem to have fared better. This hybrid is a cross of Paph Satchel Paige 'Jim Krull' AM/AOS x Paph sukhakulii 'Rory Jones'.

The 2009 SOOS show will be held February 14 & 15, 2009. More information and a $2 coupon off admission price can be found here.
