    That is a Phragmipedium. Looks like a besseae hybrid.

    I agree with Carkin. It may be Franz Glanz or Eric Young. I am not the best with Phrag hybrids but I also agree it has some besseae in it.

    No problem! I was also thinking along the same lines as Chad, it's similar to Phrag. Sergeant Eric too. I find Phrag's to be very easy to grow but they require very different care than Paph's.

    Looks like an old Phragmipedium hybrid, maybe Phrag Caulerum.

    Welcome to the forum, Rob. I agree that it looks pre-besseae.

    Hello - just weighing in that it does indeed look like Phrag Calurum (Sedenii x longifolium). Sedenii is longifolium x schlimii. Love those phrags.

    It looks just like my phrag Rosey Gem. It bloomed all winter.
