Welcome

Dank-o-pedilum ist the outcome of more than fifty years involvement and study of the Rolls Royce amongst orchids: the genus Paphiopedilum.

This opus presents their comprehensive history of breeding through the most important steps from initial registration in 1869 upto to 2017 with illustrations. One might describe Dank-o-pedilum as a work of the century, for only a professional orchid breeder and grower would have been capable of completing this task.

More than 7.400 outstanding illustrations on 450 plates record the developments in breeding from important classics to today’s hybrids.

This documentation commences with every species known today, on more than 600 pictures, and many rare varieties which have been pressed.

An index allows a convenient means of study and research.
