This amazing cross took place between the American native Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens and the Chinese Cypripedium shanxiense. The flower is similar to Cypripedium 'Annegret' but larger, with an orange and yellow blended pouch backed by twisted scarlet sepals...so wonderful! We are thrilled to be able to offer this new hybrid before it has been named and registered. Our flowering-sized plants are in very short supply.
