Report From The May 2022 Meeting
NWOS president Steve Dorsey welcomed new people to our group. We then went right into the night’s main event. First vice president Robert Culver introduced our speaker, Bill Goldner, PhD, who came to us via a Zoom presentation.
His talk was “New Looks for Miniature Phragmipedium Hybrids and Other New Lines of Breeding.” He compared many crosses and their parents and showed the outcomes of the various breeding attempts. He showed many breakthroughs in breeding and in particular with mini phragmipediums. Some of the results included amazing new colors. He reserved talking about Phrag.

Andy Wright and Abigail Chang managed our plant table for people in the room and on Zoom for us.
