Cypripedium 'Emil' is a 1993 Werner Frosch hybrid of the European Cypripedium calceolus and the American Cypripedium parviflorum var. parviflorum. The result is a vigorous grower, topped in late May with 18" stalks of stunning flowers, each composed of a bright yellow pouch complemented by dark burgundy, twisted sepals. A well-grown clump of Cypripedium 'Emil' can produce up to 24 flowers in only 3 years...fastest in cool summer climates. Our offerings are all flowering-sized plants. Cypripedium 'Emil' is named after Emil Lueckel, former president of the German Orchid Society.
