    Cypripedium subtropicum - signs of seedling life

    Cyp subtropicum is a dream plant for Cyp growers. Years ago, I, like many others, was able to obtain some seed which germinated but the seedlings never thrived in flask and I lost them. A couple of years ago Wenqing Perner offered deflasked seedlings. The seedlings were of excellent quality...

    Cypripedium Anita

    Here is Cyp Anita that I purchased from Anthura last year. It is a hybrid of Cyp formosanum and californicum. Like all formosanum hybrids I have seen the leaves are quite wide although without the formosanum pleats. Also, like all formosanum hybrids, the flowers are essentially identical to...

    Cypripedium Huanglong Love

    I purchased two of Wenqing Perner's new hybrid, Huanglong Love (xventricosum x tibeticum) a few months ago. A lovely complex hybrid of (calceolus x macranthos) x tibeticum. I am told that these two plants are pod siblings - certainly xventricosum is quite varied in its clones - solid red...

    Cypripedium Schoko

    Cyp Schoko is another favorite. Each year the flower quality among my plants varies. For whatever reason this is a banner year (rain was typical - a lot! but the winter temperatures were somewhat colder more often than usual. We had a 24 F night and a few in the upper 20s). Here are flowers...

    Most elegant hybrid Cyp flower - Cyp xcolumbianum

    My all time favorite hybrid Cyp flower is xcolumbianum (natural hybrid of montanum and parviflorum pubescens; Mother Nature does a very good job. This particular specimen, in my "show bed" has highly twisted sepals very much like its montanum parent. The flower is about 3 times the size of...

    More Cyp Sabine

    I hit Send accidently before adding all the pix. Here is a first time blooming Sabine. It has very intense flower coloration. I will set it aside to see how it matures. Like Linus I find that most album flowered Sabines have slightly smaller and more oval-shaped flowers, like the one at the...

    Cypripedium Sabine several plants

    Cyp Sabine is another early bloomer for me. I start off with two nice clumps. Each bloomed for the first time in 2015 and were in the same raised bed through Fall 2019. I then moved them such that one clump is in my new display bed and the other is in a mixed garden bed. Both were a bit...

    Cypripedium formosanum and Cyp Lady Dorine

    Here is Cyp formosanum and a Cyp formosanum hybrid, Lady Dorine, both blooming now. Lady Dorine is a hybrid of formosanum with fasciolatum and is one of my favorites. I find the flowers to be quite elegant and beautiful with their faithful reproduction of their parent formosanum, and while the...

    Cyp Eurasia - a magnificient hybrd that I ignored too long!

    This is Cyp Eurasia. The hybrid has been around a long time, having been registered by Nakamura in 2005. I have imported specimens for three years now (originated with Anthura) but the first two years I sold all of them without keeping one. Last Fall I received more and only sold three so I...

    Cypripedium lichiangense

    I have historically had a lot of problems keeping this species alive. I now have two of them that have bloomed more than once before dying. Here is the senior one, in bloom now. This is its third year in bloom (I have managed to keep it alive for four years having gotten it as a mature plant...

    Cypripedium cordigerum

    Here is a rare species in cultivation that I have wanted for a long time. I like the bright pastel green sepals with snow white pouch. These are small flowers, just larger than true Cyp candidum. Ron

    Cypripedium fasciolatum x acaule

    There was discussion of this cross recently. Here is a plant in bloom. I have several of these, all obtained from a wholesaler in Germany (HardyOrchid). I believe but do not know for sure that these plants originated in Belgium. They are definitely hybrid. The flowers look like...
