Paphiopedilum (abbreviated Paph.) Vanguard is an old primary hybrid lady slipper orchid that was originally registered in 1921. This remake was created by Terry Root of the Orchid Zone, using their best and largest awarded Paph. rothschildianum clone ‘Rex’, which has a First Class Certificate from the American Orchid Society (FCC/AOS). Paph. Vanguard is a very popular and very showy multifloral Paph. rothschilianum hybrid that is much easier to grow than Paph. rothschildianum and requires less space. The plants are very compact and vigorous. The flowers are dark, large and extremely showy, held above attractive foliage. It is a sequential bloomer, with each flower lasting 3-4 weeks.  This is hot-warm growing plant will do well outdoors in areas like Texas and South Florida where there is high humidity and good air circulation. Easy to grow and a reliable bloomer, makes this plant an excellent choice for beginners. Highly Recommended.  #Paph #showy #sequential-bloomer #easy #reliable-bloomer
