Cypripedium  'Ventricosum'
Zoom In Photo:

'Ventricosum' is the artificial remake of a naturally occuring hybrid between the European lady's slipper C. calceolus and the Siberian C. macranthos where their ranges overlap in the wild. It is incredibly stable and robust in its growth with magnificent deep pink and fuchsia colouration. Grows to 35-45 cm (14-18 in) high with broad leaves and strong stems. Grown from seed. Plants will resemble the image but may not be identical. Blooming size. Lady's slipper hybrids are much more vigorous and easy to grow than species.
