Cypripedium 'Gisela' is a 1992 Werner Frosch hybrid of the Chinese Cypripedium macranthos and the North American Cypripedium parviflorum var. parviflorum. The robust Cypripedium 'Gisela' makes a patch of 15" tall stems, each topped in mid-May with a creamy yellow pouch with burgundy streaks, backed by three large sepals of dark burgundy with a flush of yellow. These are all seed-propagated, flowering-sized plants.
