Paphiopedilum primulum fma. purpurescens
Colorful form of Paphiopedilum primulum, with rosy pink pouch and golden dorsal, is a notable contrast to the easily recognizable flavum (yellow/white) form. Paphiopedilum primulum is endemic to Sumatra, a warm growing species found at 400-1000m of elevation. Interestingly, the “type” form of the species is the flavum form, which was discovered first.
