Cypripedium 'Birgit Pastel'
Common Name: Hybrid Lady's Slipper Family: Orchidaceae (The Orchid Family)

Cypripedium  'Birgit Pastel'
Zoom In Photo:

A classic hybrid for an elegant display in the shade garden, 'Birgit Pastel' is robust and strong growing. It has clear and uniform colouration with a pure white lip surrounded by creamy-yellow petals. In contrast to 'Ventricosum Pastel' this cross has absolutely no red detailing in the flower. 'Birgit Pastel' is thus a close approximation of the delicate and rare wild species C. cordigerum. Grows to 30-35 cm (12-14 inches) and blooms in May. Lady's slipper hybrids are much more vigorous and easy to grow than species. Blooming size.
