It’s Still Slipper Season
Last month when I wrote about Slipper Season, one of the three Paphiopedilum flowers had not yet opened. Since it’s one of my favorites, here’s a special update.
This plant’s name is Alma Gavaert ‘Hagers’ x (Oriental Mystique x Enchanted Orient), which means it’s a hybrid of a hybrid. I’m amazed that anyone can keep names like this straight.
There’s just something about green and white flowers. I love them.
