Paphiopedilum Deperle


Paph Deperle (primulinum v. purpurascens x delenatii v. vinicolor)

Pink! When this hybrid is made with these parents all the flowers come out pink. This hybrid has been made using light parents in the past, resulting in white flowers but we will not see that here.

Sequential bloomer that stays in flower for an extended time. Blooming size plants.

Paphiopedilum Deperle is a primary hybrid of Paph delenatii crossed with Paph primulinum. In many ways this hybrid gets the best of both parents. It has broad petals from delanatii, and blooms sequentially like primulinum. A mature plant will produce up to 5 flowers, one or two at a time.

This particular cross was made with delenatii var. vinicolor, which has a dark red pouch instead of the pink pouch of the typical form. The other parent is primulinum var. purpurascens, which has a pink pouch and spots on the petals. The result is a pink form of Deperle which is very impressive.

Like most other primary hybrids, Paphiopedilum Deperle is a very strong and vigorous grower. It can bloom pretty much any time of year but is most prolific from fall through spring. Grow this plant like mottle leaf species and hybrids as described here.
