Paphiopedilum Arthur


Paphiopedilum Arthur (venustum x philippinense)

An interesting combination to say the least! There are a few photos of this hybrid out there on Flickr but it is definitely a rare beast. It has gorgeous foliage, like most venustum hybrids.

Paphiopedilum Arthur is a primary hybrid of (venustum x philippinense). This is an oddball combination to say the least! It was registered back in 1890 and has very beautiful foliage. That’s really all we know about it.

There are a few flower photos that can be turned up with a web search, but I have never seen one in person. It looks like the venustum ‘brain pouch’ comes through to some extent, which is always appealing.
