    [​IMG]Here is Cypripedium Bernd. It is an early bloomer, first opened last week.

    This is also an image link test.

    I like it, but we both know a guy who would call these types "horrid veined things". I do have to say that in this case I feel that the parent species are far more attractive than the resulting hybrid. Easy to grow? I'm guessing the C. segawai blood is the reason it is an early bloomer.

    Yes, these horrid veined things are problems! I agree that the segawae parent is responsible for the early bloom. Barry Phillips blooms right alongside these.
