Posted on another page by Michael Tibbs. I don’t know him but thought it newsworthy.
Phragmipedium LOVELY LYNNE
(Fritz Schomberg x PeruFlora’s Cirila Alca)
The very best and biggest ever to flower. NS 12.7cm. It’s not without its problems being a colchicine treated hybrid but the size, shape and colour is tremendous
Seedlings available

Nice isn’t it? This cross is next level especially if it is tetraploid.
12.7cm is huge for a flower of this type.
I have a compot of tetraploid seedlings from him of a sibling of this cross.
Not sure if this plant is one of the parents.
Growing well,
David

So all of those in the EU are the lucky ones.
