Not dreaming of a white Christmas? Perhaps dreaming of a paph gratrixianum then. Just like the one I got to know. About a dozen flowers sit beautifully on this fine specimen which took home the award for best plant at a recent show.

Santa baby, hurry down the chimney tonight!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
