Cypripedium 'Francis' is a 2001 Owen Robinson release...a cross of the US native Cypripedium kentuckiense and the Asian native Cypripedium speciosum. Cypripedium 'Francis', named after Owen's dad, forms a 15" tall specimen, topped with medium-sized flowers with a white and purple stained pouch from the Cypripedium speciosum parent, and backed with long, twisted, purple striped sepals that show the influence of Cypripedium kentuckiense. As with all cypripedium, slightly moist but well-drained soils are best. Our offerings are all flowering-sized plants.
