in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

Another cross of an almost white with a classic large green and white.  This was done to improve the shape of the white. The photogaph posted shows what happened to the Maudiae shape of the white.  Others are the classic large green and white shape.  Now the trick will be to create white with great [...]

Paphiopedilum Oriental Green

40204 Paphiopedilum Oriental Green

(Paphiopedilum Oriental Jewel 'Whiteness' x Paphiopedilum sukhakulii fma aureum 'Gravenstein')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

These flowers are consistently sukhakulii shaped in colors that range from a beautiful apple green to almost white.

Paphiopedilum Captivatingly Wood

(Paphiopedilum Luna Magic 'Lehua Peppermint Polka' AM/AOS x Wood Wonder 'OZNote II')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We’ve done it again, I think this is the third or fourth time we have made this cross;  We don’t like to repeat ourselves but every time we see these two parents in flower they simply seem to be naturals to breed together.

Paphiopedilum Petula in Pink (2)

40202 Paphiopedilum Petula’s Pink Delight

(Paphiopedilum Petula in Pink 'Pink Vibes' x Paphiopedilum Petula's Magic 'Lots of Pink')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We took two of our most attractive pinks in our Petula series and crossed them.  A  lot of delight soft pink flowers have graced our benches.

Paphiopedilum Presidential Moon

311205 Paphiopedilum Presidential Moon

(Paphiopedilum Luna Magic 'Lehua Peppermint Polka' AM/AOS x President Fred 'Pink Aura')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

One of the more successful attempts where we are trying to get a green center and pink surround including in the dorsal while eliminating the spots.  This is a pleasant surprise considering how spotted the pollen parent, Luna Moon, is.

Paphiopedilum Fred’s Fantasy

31204 Paphiopedilum Fred’s Fantasy

(Paphiopedilum Friedrich von Hayek 'Lehua Quiet Elegance' HCC/AOS x Luna Magic 'Lehua Spotted Champion' AM/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

This is an attempt to create lighter petals and ultimately a lighter pouch yet retain the spots.  Lovely clean crisp dorsal and petals that have some white.

31203 Paphiopedilum Macabre Glamor

(Paphiopedilum Macabre Lady 'Huge Spots' x Paphiopedilum Spots Galore 'Everywhere')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

If you love spots this is for you.  Both parents are heavily spotted with Spots Galore even having them in the pouch.  Photograph coming.

(Paphiopedilum Luna Magic 'Lehua Peppermint Polka' AM/AOS x Magically Macabre 'Monster')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

The spots of Luna Magic are enhanced by the pink overlay from Magically Macabre.  Photograph to follow.

31013 Paphiopedilum Ghostly President

(Paphiopedilum President Fred 'Pink Aura' x Paphiopedilum Macabre Petula 'Monster')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

GHOSTLY is correct.  I know it is tempting to editorialize and say GHASTLY but we will refrain from editorial comment except when we post Presidential Flight.  This is named for its pod parent President Fred and its pollen parent Macabre Petula.  Lovely deep pinks with good size.  Photograph to follow.

30805 Paphiopedilum Fred Perfected

(Paphiopedilum Friedrich von Hayek 'Lehua Quiet Elegance' HCC/AOS x President Fred 'Pink Glow')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We crossed one of our favorite Freidrich von Hayek hybrids (President Fred) back to one of its parents.  Lovely pinks with spots.  Another photography candidate.

Paphiopedilum Petula’s Glamor

in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We are seeing many deep reds and darker.

30705 Paphiopedilum Fred’s Wonder

(Paphiopeilum Mr Wonderful 'Lehua Twinkles 'HCC/AOS' x Paphiopedilum Friedrich von Hayek 'Lehua Quiet Elegance' HCC/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

A little less spotting than Friedrich von Hayek but now gorgeous coloring in the flower, shades of pink distally and green basally on the petals, sepals showing both pink and white with hints of green centrally.

30604 Paphiopedilum Odette on High

Paphiopedilum (Odette's Glory 'Blushing Pink' x Paphiopedilum Superb Fred 'Lehua Flying High' HCC/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

The pollen parent, as the award name implies, is a very tall stem.  This comes from adding superbiens as one of the parents.  Many of the flowers we are seeing favor this pollen parent, a tall stem with deep pink flowers and heavy dark spotting.  Photograph needed.

30603 Paphiopedilum Odette’s Desire

Paphiopedilum Odette's Spell 'Mauvest' x Paphiopedilum Petula's Magic 'Hints of Black')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

Most have very dark foliage and we are seeing some very special vini-color flowers.  Another one for the photographer!

30503 Paphiopedilum Fred’s Pink Pride

(Paphiopedilum Friedrich von Hayek 'Lehua's Quiet Elegance' HCC/AOS x Paphiopedilum Kiwi Charm 'Pink Charm')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

Kiwi Charm does take the size down a little but this is more than made up for by the pink glow this brings to the flower. Another one to be photographed

Paphiopedilum Presidential Pops

30403 Paphiopedilum Presidential Pops

(Paphiopedilum Magic Pops 'Pink Porfolio' x Paphiopedilum President Fred 'Dreaming Pink')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

A lovely shade of pink with a lot of mahogany spotting, with some as dark as the one we photographed where the spots have coalesced.

Paphiopedilum Petula’s Sensation

(Paphiopedilum Macabre Contrasts 'Contrasting Potential' x Paphiopedilum Petula's Flame 'Lehua Contrasts' HCC/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We are so impressed with these parents that we made this cross several times.  Here is the first one we are willing to make available.

30202 Paphiopedilum Hawaiian Jewel

(Paphiopedilum Hawaiian Illusion 'Strident Green' x Paphiopedilum Jewel Green 'Withdrawn')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

There are so many different Hawaiian Illusion besides the ones we have awarded.  This time we used a parent that has more green and crossed it with our finest Jewel Green that is more desirable than our awarded Jewel Green.  The outcome still needs to get in front of our camera!

30104 Paphiopedilum Petula’s Moon

Paphiopedilum Luna Magic 'Ginormous' x Paphiopedilum Lady Petula 'Andra's Belle' AM/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We used the pollen from one of our customer’s awarded flowers with one of our very large heavily spotted, light colored hybrids.  we have the best of both worlds, large flowers with hints of pink and lots of spots.  But you’ll have to take our word for it untl we photograph a flower!

(Paphiopedilum Fred's Ghost 'Light Touch' x Paphiopedilum Luna Magic 'Lehua Spotted Champion' AM/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We  are seeing an even lighter background covered with spots.  We are looking to breed this to one of our white mottled leaf (Maudiae type) to see if we can eventually created a white flower with dark spots.

Paphiopedilum Fred’s Spots

21007 Paphiopedilum Fred’s Spots

(Paphiopedilum Fred's Ghost 'Light Touch' x Paphiopedilum Magic Fred 'Lehua Crazy Spots' HCC/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We really were in a pink mood when we created this section of the Price Point series.  Yet anther great example of intense pink covered with spots.  We are even seeing some that are approaching vinicolor.  Again we need a photograph

Paphiopedilum Magical Fred

21004 Paphiopedilum Magical Fred

(Paphiopedilum Magic Pops 'Incredible Pink' x Paphiopedilum Friedrich von Hayek 'Lehua Quiet Elegance' HCC/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

Beautiful pastel pinks, covered with lots of small spots, one even has spots on the dorsal sepal.  Others like the photograph are showing little or no spotting.

21003 Paphiopedilum Magic Doubled

(Paphiopedilum Raisin Magic 'Lehua The Schnoz' HCC/AOS x Paphiopedilum Magic Spots 'Lehua Crazy Spots' HCC/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

Great coloratums with lots of spots.  Another one on our “to be photographed list”

(Paphiopedilum Wood Wonder 'OZNote IV' x Paphiopedilum Magic Pops 'Blushing Magenta')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

Great spots on a gorgeous pink background.  Yet anothergreat example of our “Oxymoron Series”

(Paphiopedilum Petula's Ghost 'Darkness' x Paphiopedilum Petula's Mystery 'Dark Sentinal')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

Another cross we could not resist remaking.  Lots of very dark flowers, some with hints of black.  The photograph is from our first cross.  We have this on our list to take a photograph of this remake.

Paphiopedilum Fred in Pink

20906 Paphiopedilum Fred in Pink

(Paphiopedilum Anhinga 'Matthias Pink' x Paphiopedilum President Fred 'Pink Aura')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We are using Anhinga primarily for its pink content and lack of spots.  The President Fred we used has much the characteristics.  We are seeing many flowers with lots of pink and low spot count.

Paphiopedilum Fred’s Delight

20903 Paphiopedilum Fred’s Delight

(Paphiopedilum Raisin Magic 'Lehua The Schnoz' HCC/AOS x Paphiopedilum Fred's Ghost 'Light Touch')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We took our stunning Raisin Magic, and added a gorgeous lighter colored coloratum.  We have not been disappointed by the results.

Paphiopedilum Spring Moonbeam ‘Dorsal Dominance’

20902 Paphiopedilum Spring Moonbeam

(Paphiopedilum Lun Jewel 'Green Aura' x Paphiopedilum sukhakulii fma aureum 'Green Triumph')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We don’t usually remake a cross, but these two parents just jumped out at us telling us to cross them.  They have not disappointed us.

20804 Paphiopedilum Wolf’s Moon

(Paphiopedilum Dire Wolf 'What's in a Name' x Paphiopedilum Luna Jewel 'Green Aura')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

Dire Wolf, the one parent is a great, large, heavily green album.  We crossed it with a slightly smaller Luna Jewel.  We are enjoying the outcome.  At least we were able to get a slightly more acceptable name! But we need to take a photograph

Paphiopedilum Petula’s Jewel ‘Boldness’

20801 Paphiopedilum Petula’s Jewel

(Paphiopedilum Petula's Flame'Flaming Green' x Paphiopedilum Jewel Green 'Withdrawn')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

The pollen parent, Jewel Green, is a spectacular flower.  It is better than better than our awarded one (Jewel Green ‘Lehua Iridescent Green’) which is stunning.  Putting this with a great green coloratum pod parent we are seeing a wide range of greens, many with pink, some with lots of spots, and others with few [...]

Paphiopedilum Oriental Spring

(Paphiopedilum Oriental Jewel 'Green Radiance x Spring Moonbeam 'Dorsal Dominance')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

The third time we are listing this cross in this website update (August 2015).  We really do like its potential.  This time we used Orient Jewel and the pod parent bringing its very green coloring to the cross.

Paphiopedilum Oriental Spring

20703 Paphiopedilum Oriental Joy

(Paphiopedilum Luna Jewel 'Pistachio' x Paphiopedilum Oriental Jewel 'Green Radiance')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We bred two album mottled leaf species from the Barbata section fully expecting to get a color form result.  Much to our delight the progeny did come in in hte album form.  We have seen one color form flower and we don’t think there will be any more.  This cross earned an AM at Paph [...]

in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

Probably a first for us, this is the third time we have made this cross.  We see so much potential in these parents.  This time we used our awarded Luna Magic with the same Wood Wood.

Paphiopedilum Oriental Spring (3)

20402 Paphiopedilum Oriental Spring

(Paphiopedilum Spring Moonbeam 'Dorsal Dominance' Oriental Jewel 'Almost White')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We enjoyed the potential of this cross so much we did it twice (see also 20301 below) but this time we used a translucent Oriental Jewel looking to get some whites.

Paphiopedilum Spring Sunset

20401 Paphiopedilum Spring Sunset

(Paphiopedilum Spring Moonbeam 'Dorsal Extraordinaire' x Paphiopedilum mastersianum '12 mile')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We have always enjoyed the influence of mastersianum on mottled leaf (Maudiae) breeding so we thought why not try it with a green & white.  we are thrilled with the result, more vibrant color, depth of color and gloss to the flower segments.

20305 Paphiopedilum Spring Fever

(Paphiopedilum Spring Moonbeam 'Dorsal Dominance' x Duguesclin 'Lehua Double Delight' HCC/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We crossed our great green & white with our much admired sukhakulii primary hybrid with the long term objective of putting  moreof  the sukhakulii appearance into the green & white in the next couple of generations.  We have kept the few we want to work with and the rest are now available.  Gret coloratum features.

in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We are seeing some very large green and white  flowers.  These are on the verge of being moved to out Premium price category where we have our “wedding quality” green & white flowers.  Blame that on Martha Stewartwho opines that every bride must have these as flowers for the wedding.

Paphiopedilum Oriental Spring

(Paphiopedilum Spring Moonbeam 'Late Pleasure' x Paphiopedilum Oriental Jewel 'Green Radiance)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We are seeing a wide range of colors from light coloratum to vinicolor.  Attractive foliage. The photograph is of the color form we were shooting for with this hybrid, and many are quite like this one.

in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

This was bred using one of our white mottle leaf (Maudiae style) Paphs with one of our very light Fred’s Ghost.  This is part of the program to try to create a white flower with dark spots.  Many are truly light, and the overlay on the pouch is beginning to disappear.

Number 5 in the oxymoron series (see 10701 for story), and we just check seed pod records, there are more in the lab, and we found the next generation is already in the lab.  This one we used a classic sukhakulii style with pink on the ends of the petals with the large spots of [...]

(Paphiopedilum Luna Magic 'Double Glow' x Paphiopedilum Wood Wonder OZNote II')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

We said this was the oxymoron series (see 10701 for complete story).  Luna Magic with its great small spots and pink blush is combined with the huge spots of Wood Wonder.  We like the possibilities of this combination so much we did it twice, the second time under the number 10905 using Luna Magic ‘Blushing [...]

(Paphipedilum Magic Pops 'Pink Portfolio' x Paphiopedilum Wood Wonder 'OzNote I')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

(Paphiopedilum Lady Macbeth x Paphiopedilum Petula's Mystery 'Dark Aura')

in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

Looking for a very light flower we used our large green and white Spring Moonbeam with a green and white wardii favoring hybrid Memoria Nicholas Hamann.  We got a surprise, the color from Spring Moonbean, the form from Memoria Nicholas, with the size of Spring Moonbeam.  Simply delightful and somewhat unusual.

in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Price Point > Paphiopedilum Price Point - Mottled Leaf Coloratum, Vini, and Flames

More variations than you can possibly imagine from four species.  Very basic breeding but the introduction of mastersianum and venustum make for some really delightful flowers that are typically quite long lasting.  Let us know if you need an individual photograph.

(Paphiopedilum Duguesclin 'Greenery' x Paphiopedilum Saiun 'Tiddles')

in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Brachypetalum/Parvisepalum Influenced

When these are good they are stunning, no two ways about it.  Unfortunately there is a high risk of them being not very good, although the color is still a delight.

Paphiopedilum Henrietta’s Charm

(Paphiopedilum Henrietta Fujiwara 'Sunny' AM/AOS x Paphiopedilum delenatii 'Morning Pink')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Brachypetalum/Parvisepalum Influenced

A multifloral, one we are trying to breed on to get a higher flower count and a white multi.  This time we have produced two, sometime three white flowers that we plan to breed to philippinense fma alboflavum.  Meanwhile we have a great flower to enjoy in its own right.

(Paphipedilum Dreaming Green 'All Green' x Paphiopedilum fairrieanum fma bohlmannianum 'Surprise')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - fairrieanum influences

Another of our very successful fairrieanum with yellow complex crosses.  Most have very tall stems.  Flowers show significant coloring despite the fact that we used an album fairrieanum.

(Paphiopedilum Cinnamon Cream 'First Round' x Paphiopedilum Satin Veil 'White Aura')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Kinda/Sorta Complex

A delightful combination of one of our earlier kinda/sorta complex with a true yellow complex.  We have enjoyed watching these flower and have pulled a couple to work with going forward.

Paphiopedilum Starring Venus

00405 Paphiopedilum Starring Venus

(Paphiopedilum Telstar 'Orbit' x Paphiopedilum venustum fma measursianum 'Cheerful')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Kinda/Sorta Complex

We took a yellow complex (bulldog) and crossed it with an album species.  The result is a neat, smaller, charming quasi complex with attractive leaves.

Paphiopedilum Select – Multifloral/Sequential

4” square pots
In bud delivered in the US (except Alaska) in-pot $13.00

21001 Paphiopedilum Cascading Purple

(Paphiopedilum Cascading Pink 'Lehua Glauco'roids' AM/AOS x Paphiopedilum lowii '7 Wonder')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Multifloral/Sequential

We love the result of crossing our much admired Cascading Pink with the great blooming habit of lowii. We used our ’7  Wonder’ lowii clone as it is our most floriferous in terms of flower count and the number of spikes.  We need to take a photograph.

Paphiopedilum Victoria’s Passion

20802 Paphiopedilum Victoria’s Passion

(Paphiopedilum victoria-mariae 'Pink Charm' x Paphiopedilum lowii 'Dragon's Flight' HCC/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Multifloral/Sequential

We could not believe that this primary hybrid had not been made.  We are delighted with the result.  However, interestingly we made the same cross using lowii as the pod parent.  We have a lot but you will probably never see them as almost all of them with lowii as the pod parent are failing [...]

Paphiopedilum Vicky’s Twirls

11105 Paphipedilum Vicky’s Twirls

(Paphiopedilum Robinianum 'Lehua Rampant' AM/AOS x victoria-mariae 'Pink Charm')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Multifloral/Sequential

A very appealing mid-size flower that has a great sequential habit on a tall, upright stem.

Paphiopedilum Tigerdolli

(Paphiopedilum haynaldianum 'Royal' x Paphiopedilum henryanum 'Major Spots')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Multifloral/Sequential

At last we have seen one bloom, aand a few others have come into bud.  Very slow to initiate the first bloom, a little over 5 years out of flask.  let’s hope they bloom regularly from here on out.  However we have found that with us henryanum seems to bloom every otehr year. Lets hope [...]

Paphiopedilum Avalon Druid

00503 Paphiopedilum Avalon Druid

(Paphiopedilum Avalon Mist 'Tall Dream' x Paphiopedilum druryi 'Ray' HCC/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Multifloral/Sequential

We created this to be a Druid Spring look-alike, but larger.  We achieved this by using Avalon Mist as one of the parents.  Avalon Mist looks like primulinum on steroids.  Delightful and sequential with the distinctive druryi stripe.

60705 Paphiopedilum Mount Avalon

60705 Paphiopedilum Mount Avalon

(Mount Toro 'Highlight' HCC/AOS x Avalon Mist ‘Sunshine’)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Multifloral/Sequential

Another Honey look alike, this time with a touch of glaucophyllum that gives a little more pink

(Paphiopedilum malipoense 'Chunky' x Paphiopedilum delenatii fma vinicolor 'Pinky')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Novelty

We remade Lynleigh, not something we usually do,  but this time with delenatii fma vinicolor.  We are seeing more pink in the flowers and the foliage is very dark, especially on the underside of the leaves.

Paphiopedilum Nitens fma album

10102 Paphiopedilum Nitens fma album

(Paphiopedilun Nitens 'Gyorgy' x self) [Paphiopedilum insigne fma sanderae x Paphipedilum villosum fma fuscoviride]
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Novelty

The album form.  We selfed a Nitens album form and got nothing but albums.  A few have some small red spots that do come from one form of insigne most are pure album.

Paphiopedilum Select – Species

Paphiopedilum callosum var.sublaeve ‘Withdrawn Gift’

(Paphiopedilum callosum var. sublaeve 'Withdrawn Gift' x self)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Species

Synonym callosum var. thailandense.  Great multifloral, yes it is, species.  The first bloom usually shows two flowers but the parent has had consistently three and sometimes four flowers.  Repotted into 4″ pots Spring 2015.  Here is a picture of the parent.

Paphiopedilum sukhakulii fma aureum

21103 Paphiopedilum sukhakulii fma aureaum

(Paphiopedilum sukhakulii fma aureum 'Green Triumph' x Paphiopedilum sukhakulii fma aureum 'Green Joy')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select - Species

These were transplanted into 4′ final pots in early 2015.  Normally we do not list anything until it has been in its final pot for a year.  We know how much in demand species areand these are flowering beautifully, so here they are.

Paphiopedilum tonsum

10704 Paphiopedilum tonsum

(Paphiopedilum tonsum 'Tall B' x Paphiopedilum tonsum 'Bigby")
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Species

We sibling crossed two carrying the same album parent.  We did get a number of fma alboviride that we have kept to try to self.  We did not get the statistical 25% presumably because the album form is weaker and the seedling would have been culled in the growing cycles.  We are selling the alboviride [...]

(Paphiopedilum Sorcerer's Stone 'Snow Cap' x In-Charm Lovely ''Normous 'n Round')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

Strikingly large round yellow flowers, many with the large part of the dorsal in pure white.  We also make this cross using a different Sorcerer’s Stone, but with the same delightful result.

Paphiopedilum Starring Puddle

10402 Paphiopedilum Starring Puddle

(Paphiopedilum Star Gazer 'White Flutter' x Paphiopedilum Telstar 'Orbit')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

This one got named for F C Puddle as Puddle’s influnce thru the generations has been so dominant.  It really should have been nmed for the really elegant yellow that makes up 3/4 of the cross.  Many are showing shades of white.

10103 Paphiopedilum Dreaming Stoned

(Paphiopedilum Stone Lovely 'Lehua Butter Puff' x Paphiopedilum Dreaming Green 'Green Goddess')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

We love using Stone lovely as a parent (aside from its obvious naming potential!).  It really does produce some very special offspring.  This one is no exception.  We are seeing lots of green tones.  It is on thei list to be photographed.

Paphiopedilum Mele Moon (3)

01210 Paphiopedilum Mele Moon

(Paphiopedilum Moving Lights 'Yellow Dream' x Paphiopedilum Mele Pops 'Ginormous')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

This one we did deliberately make a second time.  The first was such a delight that we could not resist using what we think is a far superior pollen parent to make it a second time.

01209 Paphiopedilum Via Paracombe

(Paphiopedilum Hellas 'Westonbirt' FCC/RHS, B/CSA x PAphiopedilum Green Gold 'Invierno Orb' HCC/AOS, B/CSA)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

We don’t normally make crosses that have been made previously but when we saw these two parents side by side we could not resist remaking the cross.  We just have to remeber to keep one back to photograph it.

Paphiopedilum Mele Star

01208 Paphiopedilum Mele Star

(Paphiopedilum Mele Pops 'Ginormous Orb' x Ppahiopedilum Telstar 'White Picotee')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

We are really seeing some huge size on some of these bright yellow flowers that have an attractive a white edge to the dorsal

Paphiopedilum Veiled Dreams

01205 Paphiopedilum Veiled Dreams

(Paphiopedilum Satin Veil 'White Aura' x Paphiopedilum Dreaming Green 'Tall Friend')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

Another Satin Veil hybrid, this time using it with our tall stemmed Dreaming Green.  There is a wide array of colors.  This photograph of two plants begins to show some of the range.

Paphiopedilum Veiled Charm

01107 Paphiopedilum Veiled Charm

(Paphiopedilum In Shape 'Wide Light' x Paphiopedilum Satin Veil 'White Aura')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

We love using Satin Veil, it adds great autumnal colors and some spotting.  In Shape also has some spotting and deep yellow to green colors.

Paphiopedilum Sorcerer’s Star

01105 Paphiopedilum Sorcerer’s Star

(Paphiopedilum Telstar 'Orbit' x Paphiopedilum Sorcerer's Stone 'Late Gold')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

Again we are working with the huge Sorcerer’s Stone and this time crossing it with the classic delight, Telstar.  Great round flowers usually with a smaller white picote on the dorsal sepal.

Paphiopedilum Sorcerer’s Love

01103 Paphiopedilum Sorcerer’s Love

(paphiopedilum Sorcerer's Stone 'Big Boomer' x Paphiopedilum In-Charm Lovely ''Normous 'n Round')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

Sorcerer’s Stone is a very bold, round heavy substance yellow, In-Charm Lovely brings a more delicate substance creating a very attractive large yellow usually with a huge white dorsal.

01102 Paphiopedilum Mele Emerald

Paphiopedilum (Mele Pops 'Limeade' x Emerald Brocade 'Pure Green')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

We see nice yellow to green round flowers.  This is another one we need to photograph

Paphiopedilum Jolly Mele

00601 Paphiopedilum Jolly Mele

(Paphiopedilum Crazy Jolly 'Big B' x Paphiopedilum Mele Pops 'Green Giant')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

Giant yellow crossed with a nice green, neither parent has any significant picote.  Large round flowers in shades of yellow to green.

Paphiopedilum Starring Tomiko

00408 Paphiopedilum Starring Tomiko

(Paphiopedilum Telstar 'Orbit' x Paphiopedilum Tomatillo 'Green Seas')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

Another in a breeding that favors green.  Telstar is a classic yellow with a large white dorsal to which we have added Tomatillo, a flower that typically opens green.

Paphiopedilum Dreaming Emerald

00207 Paphiopedilum Dreaming Emerald

(Paphiopedilum Dreaming Green 'green Smile' x Paphiopedilum Emerald Lake 'Lehua Greenery' HCC/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

We are getting greens!  And on taller stems.  What a delight.

Paphiopedilum Star Dreaming

00205 Paphiopedilum Star Dreaming

(Paphiopedilum Dreaming green 'Autumn Gold' x Paphiopedilum Telestar 'Orbit')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

A tall Dreaming Green crossed with a classic round yellow producing some varied shades of green and yellow with the occasional autumnal lokk thrown in.  This is so varied and is why we truly love making seed crosses.

Paphiopedilum Dreaming Mele

00202 & 01201 Paphiopedilum Dreaming Mele

(Paphiopedilum Dreaming Green x Paphiopedilum Mele Pops)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Complex Yellow/Green/Autumnal Shades

For those of you who may not remember, that is Mele as in Bing Crosby’s Mele Kalikimaka (Hawaiian for Merry Christmas) and Mele is the name of our cat who came to us at Christmas.  So dreaming merrily is a good interpretation of the name for this truly attractive flower that opens in shades of [...]

Paphiopedilum Yellow Fantasy

(Paphiopedilum Nike's Sunny Delight 'Tall and Triumphant' x Paphiopedilum haynaldianum album 'Flirtacious')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium > Paphiopedilum Premium - Multifloral

A multiforal that you would think would be a sequential given the parents, but it holds 4 up to 6 and we have even seen one with 7 flowers open at once.  Blooms freely at any time of the year when the flowering growth matures.  The parent Nike’s Sunny Delight is like a primulinum on [...]

10404 Paphiopedilum Oceans of Spots

(Paphiopedilum Black Thorpe 'Arldine' FCC/AOS x Paphiopedilum Oceans of Fire 'Red Sentinel')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus - Complex Reds & Complex Spots

We bred for spots and this time we got nothing but spots.  It’s on the photography list.

10401 Paphiopedilum Winston’s Pass

Paphiopedilum Winston Churchill 'Indomitable' FCC/AOS x Paphiopedilum Luther Pass 'Double Spots'
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus - Complex Reds & Complex Spots

Bred for spots on the dorsal sepal.  ’Indomitable’ is the classic spotted Winston and Luther Pass brings in another spotted classic Spotglen bred to Winston Churchill ‘Indomitable’ .  The result is 3/4 Winston and a lot of spots.  And of course we have forgotten to photograph.

00706 Paphiopedilum Great Warrior

(Paphiopedilum Great Aunt Mildred 'Red Glory' x Paphiopedilum Sioux 'Swallow' AM/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus - Complex Reds & Complex Spots

These flowers are usually a little smaller coming out of Mildred Hunter as a grandparent, but this is a very reliable bloomer.  But it is another one we need to photograph.

Paphiopedilum Ella Dancing

00310 Paphiopedilum Ella Dancing

(Paphiopedilum Cruela 'Spotted Double' x Paphiopedilum Luther Pass 'Double Spots')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus - Complex Reds & Complex Spots

We bred for great spots and got the.  However forgive us if an occasional red shows up, we have seen a few.

Paphiopedilum Val Ablaze

90503/90504 Paphiopedilum Val Ablaze

(Paphiopedilum Valred 'Delight' HCC/AOS x Paphiopedilum Flame Freezing 'Humungous')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus - Complex Reds & Complex Spots

Flame Freezing is a delight and proved to be a great parent (but, of course we killed it).  However we do have plenty of this offspring.  We made the reciprocal crosses and both produced plants for us.

Paphiopedilum Premium Plus -Multifloral

Paphiopedilum Robin in Purple

20303 Paphiopedilum Robin in Purple

(Paphiopedilum Robinianum 'Lehua Rampant' AM/AOS x Paphiopedilum lowii 'Dragon's Flight' HCC/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus -Multifloral

We brought lowii back on to a lowii primary hybrid, so with 3/4 lowii this benefits greatly from the lowii coloring.

Paphiopedilum Toni Semple

00803 Paphiopedilum Toni Semple

(Paphiopedilum lowii 'Dragon's Flight' HCC/AOS x Paphiopedilum haynaldianum 'PZandCo2')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus -Multifloral

What a delightful, colorful and easy to grow and flower this is.  All the vigor of the hybrid, tall spikes and lots of flowers

Paphiopedilum Parish Amble

00707 Paphiopedilum Parish Amble

(Pahiopedilum William Ambler 'Dorris' x Pahiopedilum parishii 'Lehua BenTen' AM/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus -Multifloral

Neat multifloral.  This flower is just opening.  We will try to remember to get a better photograph as the inflorescence develops.

Paphiopedilum Lo’ihi

90512 Paphiopedilum Lo’ihi

(Paphiopedilum Mount Toro 'Totality' HCC/AOS x Paphiopedilum parishii 'Lehua BenTen' AM/AOS)
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus -Multifloral

What’s a Lo’ihi we can hear you asking.  Well it’s the new volcano erupting off the Big Island that will eventually form a new island or a major extension to the Big island.  So why name it for something we’ll never see for probably millions of years?  So Graham can remeber the name, that’s why!

Paphiopedilum Henrietta Dancing ‘Lehua’s Yellow Legacy’ HCC/AOS (20142688 award photo Barfield)

90308 Paphiopedilum Henrietta Dancing

(Paphiopedilum Henrietta Fujiwara 'Sunny' AM/AOS x Paphiopedilum kolopakingii '10 mile')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus -Multifloral

We are seeing great, unusually colored multiflorals, either chartreause or yellow.  We used the very floriferous variety of kolopakingii know by the horticultural name of var. topperi

Paphiopedilum Temptation

81107 Paphiopedilum Temptation

(Paphiopedilum philippinense fma alboflavum 'Sterling' x Paphiopedilum kolopakingii var. Topperi '10 Mile')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus > Paphiopedilum Premium Plus -Multifloral

These just started blooming in 2013.  We expect more available in 2014.  Tall upright stems with from 4 to 6 flowers, usually in light colors with some in green.  The kolopagingii influence certainly improves the flower count.  Six is not unusual on the first bloom.


  • About Lehua Orchids

    Lehua Orchids is located on the Island of Hawaii (the Big island, also known as the Orchid Isle). We are on the slopes of Mauna Loa, half way between Hilo and Volcano in a community called Mountain View. In this location we enjoy the benefits of our almost daily trade winds, and nightly from the cooling effects of our “mauka” winds (winds coming down from the top of the mountain)

    In this location we are able to specialize in intermediate temperature orchids. Our daily highs in summer are about 85 degrees with a 20 degree drop at night. in winter our highs are around 75 and 60 at night. These conditions allow us to specialize in our favorite orchids, Paphiopedilums, Phragmipediums, Angraecums and Lycaste.
