Cypripedium 'John Haggar' is a 2011 Svante Malgrum hybrid of the Japanese Cypripedium hotei (Cypripedium macranthos var. hotei-atsumorianum) and the widespread Euro-Asian Cypripedium macranthos. The 2' tall clump is topped in spring with large violet pouches backed by violet and pink striped sepals...truly stunning! Cypripedium 'John Haggar' should have little heat tolerance, so should only be tried by gardeners in cooler climates. All of our ladyslipper orchid offerings are flowering sized plants.
