Cypripedium 'Bernd' is a 2001 Werner Frosch hybrid between the Asian Cypripedium macranthos and the rare Taiwanese Cypripedium segawai. The 1' tall clumps are topped with lovely raspberry pouch and sepals, with darker vein and a white ring near the pouch opening.  It remains to be seen how much summer heat these will tolerate, so we'd love your feedback if you give it a try.  Either slightly acidic or slightly alkaline soils are fine, as long as you provide decent moisture.
