There are some members of Slippertalk (me included) who enjoy a good pink Phragmipedium. This is their thread. Post some photos of your pink phrags. Avoid collecting photos off the web unless you can get permission.

So let me get this pink party started with some photos of my own Grouville. This one is Eric Young x Hanne Popow.

I bought this one from Piping Rock Orchids. It put out quite a display and is currently sending up a huge new growth.

John, I looooove your Grouville. It's really super. Glad you held on to that one.
Anyone have any good Cardinale photos? I have always thought I would like one of those.

Will put some photos up this evening when I'm on the laptop.

Finally something I can contribute to. This is Phrag Cape Sunset, acquired from our own Matthew. My first and favorite phrag. It came this spring as a nice single growth plant and now is putting on two new growths. It likes its s/h culture.

Wow, I am seeing alot of Eric Young influence in my Grouville now. The Hanne influence in yours shines through Dot. Amazing how much difference there can be.

I was looking at photos of Cape Sunset the other day and realizing just how much variance there is in that clone too. I am hoping mine shows a little less of the Eric Young influence. I don't want two of the same thing. :)

Oh, this is great! Really shows the variations.
Dot, I love that St. Ouen, and your awarded Grouville! So different from John's. What was the award level? Congratulations!
Thanks, Heather. Actually, it's been awarded twice. First and HCC, then an AM. Then it got sick, but now it is recovering.

Heather,
In a few years down the road you'll be sitting at the workbench in your greenhouse doing some repotting. You'll pull those pink phrags out of their pots and wonder if it is time to divide them. Then you will think of your friend Zach from from SlipperTalk.

Gilda, what's the fuzzy one? Looks like something my wife would like...she's crazy about anything pink and/or fuzzy.
