'Gisela' is a particularly robust hybrid, ideal for the beginner and famous for its vigour. Within a few years it forms big clumps, 35-45 cm (13-18 inches) high. Rich soil is required for vigourous growth. The striking flowers have a creamy lip marked with pink and accented by lucious red tepals. Grown from seed. Plants will resemble the image but may not be identical. A hybrid of the Asian C. macranthos with the North American C. parviflorum var. parviflorum. Blooming size. Lady's slipper hybrids are much more vigorous and easy to grow than species.
