Wine, Wine, Wine!

Here it is. Paphiopedilum callosum 'Perfection x Ninth.' Supposedly this is a species and not a hybrid, as indicated by its name. I'm not so sure, but it has impressed even my jaded eye. The image here doesn't do justice to the color and I'm sure if you're familiar with vinicolor Paphs you know what I mean. The real thing is quite amazing. Unfortunately to "real" orchidophiles the dorsal sepal has continued to torque as the bloom matures. Still, with this image it should be easier to get rid of when the flower drops. Did I just say that?
