Paphiopedilum Alfred Dimmock

Paphiopedilum Alfred Dimmock
This is a photo of one of my first orchids, a very old hybrid that came originally from the estate of W. Averell Harriman, an important political figure during the Truman administration. I received it from a friend, now deceased, who was caretaker for time on the Harriman estate. The hybrid was registered in 1902 and is of Paphiopedilum Godseffianum and Paphiopedilum druryi.
