Cypripedium 'Aki' is a strain of hybrid ladyslipper orchids developed in 1996 by Germany's Werner Frosch by crossing the Chinese Cypripedium macranthos with the American Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens. The heat tolerance of the Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens allows gardeners in warmer climates to have success. The hybrids, which display amazing vigor, emerge in late spring forming 18" tall stalks topped with large plum to pink striped flowers, each highlighted by three twisted pinkish sepals. Our offerings are all seed-grown, flowering-sized plants...each one is slightly different. Quantities are very limited.
