Cypripedium 'Sabine Pastel' is a rare white-flowered form of Cypripedium 'Sabine', which comes from a cross of the Chinese natives Cypripedium fasciolatum and Cypripedium macranthos. Atop the 18" stalk in early spring sits an obscenely large, Grade A egg-sized, pure white flower. We have grown this orchid hybrid since 2006 and have been thrilled at its heat tolerance. Our seed-grown ladyslipper orchids are all flowering size.
