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

We took two flowers that have a lots of similarity, dark petals and contrasting lighter sepals.  We got a lot of what we hoped to get, very attractive dark petals with much lighter sepals.  And we got a fair number of coloratums.  We will send you the dark version unless you request the coloratum.  Photograph [...]

We like the potential of these two parents we made the reciprocal, something we do not normally do.  See also 40308 below.  Quite honestly we do not know which cross we used to take this photograph so you have the same photograph for both numbers.

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

The pollen parent Jacqueline’s Moon heavily favors Maudiae as it is mostly from Maudiae style hybrids.  Adding a large classic sukhakulii based pod parent has done wonders for the size and shape of this classic green & white.  Photograph to follow.

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 [...]

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 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.

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 but every time our keeper bench plant flowers [...]

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!

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!

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.

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

00404 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 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

01007 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 Lynleigh Koopowitz (using delenatii fma vinicolor)

40702 Paphiopedilum Lynleigh Koopowitz

(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

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

Paphiopedilum callosum var.sublaeve ‘Withdrawn Gift’

30103 Paphiopedilum callosum var. sublaeve

(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 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 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 Premium Plus

4” square pot

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 Premium Plus -Multifloral

4” square pot
In bud delivered in the US (except Alaska) in-pot $18.00

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 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 remember the name, that’s why!

  • 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.
