This new and highly sought after ladyslipper orchid is a cross of the Chinese C. macranthos with the American C. parviflorum var. pubescens. The 18" tall stalks are topped in late spring with large flowers which consist of a "slipper" of white, backed by three twisted yellow sepals, each highlighted by small cinnamon specks. Our offerings are all seed-grown flowering-sized plants...each one is slightly different. Quantities are very limited.
