H: 10-38 cm (4-15.5 in)
4th year plants
A natural hybrid between Cypripedium guttatum and C. yatabeanum. This most northern lady's slipper has an attractive pitcher-shaped pouch, white with purple spotting, prized by collectors. This is an easy one to grow and spreads quickly but requires a longer cold period (minimum 5 months under 4 C or 39 F).
Cypripedium species normally bloom after their 5th or 6th year (cycle) of growth. Mature plants have already bloomed or are of blooming size.
