    Paphiopedilum Taiwan is a primary hybrid of Paph platyphyllum x Paph. rothschildianum, registered in 2003 by Gruss. The plant in this photo has a leafspan of almost three feet. The petals are 8 inches long. The flower color is overall a light wheat color with mahogany stripes and spots and a pink pouch. My wife, Lydia, said, "Oh my, howwww pretty!" (she usually doesn't like Paphs.)

    That is pretty, Ed (and I don't like most Paphs either). You've got great taste in Paphiopedilums.
