What is Paphiopedilum derenati
Paph. Premium Magic 'East River' is one of the gardening varieties of evergreen perennial "Paphiopedilum" of Orchidaceae.
Paphiopedilum is an orchid that looks like a carnivorous plant. This is because a big baglike lip valve in the front seems like a leaf that catches and digests insects, but Orchids do not have that function.
The structure of a typical orchid usually consists of three outer flower pieces and three inner flower pieces. The outer flower piece is composed of one back sepal and two side sepals, and the inner floral covering consists of two side petals and one lip valve.
In the case of Paphiopedylum, 2 side petals of this inner flower piece are coalesced into one piece and one lip is shaped like a bag. This looks like a carnivorous plant.
'East River', the flower as a whole is white, near the base of two side flower pieces and backpalma piece and the lip is pale yellow. This photo is an exhibit to 'World Ram Exhibition 2019', and the exhibitor is Mr. Kenji Sato.
Hana's language is "graceful attire", "oddball" and so on.
