Cypripedium 'Gabriela' is a 2003 Werner Frosch hybrid that combines two of the largest flowering hardy ladyslipper orchid species together...the US native Cypripedium kentuckiense and the Himalayan Cypripedium fasciolatum. The 18" tall plants are topped in April (NC) with large, egg-like pouches that can either be cream or yellow (each seedling is slightly different). The pouches are backed with chartreuse sepals that are heavily veined purple...very special! Our offerings of Cypripedium 'Gabriela' are all flowering-sized plants.
