Phragmipedium Ruth Morrow (Phragmipedium klotzschianum x Memoria Dick Clements)

Excuse my camera and photography skills, they are both terrible.

I bought a flask of these from Bill at Woodstream orchids circa 2018 or 2019. Apparently I was the first person to bloom one, and Bill offered to register it with whatever name I decided. So, long story short, this is named after my grandmother.

I'm a big fan of Phragmipedium klotzschianum and its hybrids, I love red flowered Phrags, and I'm especially fond of small growing / compact orchids so naturally this was an irresistible purchase for me. I've bloomed numerous cultivars of this since my original purchase, but this is the very first one to produce branched flower spikes, so I thought this would be a good one to share on here.

The vegetative size of these is variable, but overall it's a compact grower and smaller than average for a red flowered intersectional Phrag hybrid. It's proven to be easy to grow and flower. My plants have been flowering more or less since last fall.

I could literally write a novel about this plant and this hybrid, but for now I'll keep things short and sweet. Would love to hear from other slipper enthusiasts about it, though, and I may add some extra comments later.

Also, I'd like to link to another thread about this hybrid:
