This 1990 Werner Frosch hybrid strain is a cross of the Chinese C. cordigerum and the American C. parviflorum var. parviflorum. The 18"-tall stalk is topped with a creamy white pouch, backed by three twisted cinnamon/maroon sepals, often suffused with gold...oh, my! Falling in love with hybrid cypripediums has been shown to be dangerous for your fiscal well-being. Our offerings are flowering-sized plants. C. 'Ingrid' is named after German orchid grower Ingrid von Ramin, who in the 1970's was one of the pioneers in the cultivation of native European cypripediums.
