This is a cross of (P. Marie's Delight 'Patrick' X P. gigantea 'Paul Van'  HCC/AOS).  I hope that the best of these will have bright yellow flowers with heavy bars and spots from the gigantea parent.  P. gigantea doesn't always come through with the good form you would expect from the heavy round flowers, but when it does, the results can be spectacular!  I like Marie's Delight because it has heavily branching flower spikes which can continue to bloom at any time of the year.

This is the first flower to bloom from this cross.  I will be 
able to get this registered now.
