In 1847 Paphiopedilum lowii was named in Low’s honour by John Lindley, Secretary to the Royal Horticultural Society, and co-founder and editor of the Gardener’s Chronicle. According to Lindley’s description, 'It is difficult to imagine anything more beautiful in its way; the lip is a purplish-green and as smooth as if French polished; ... the petals are nearly three inches long, spreading and then curving gracefully inwards and downwards, pale greenish yellow, with numerous well-defined purple blotches and a few stiff marginal purple hairs; a rich violet-purple at the end which is twice as broad as the lower part.'
