Paphiopedilum
sukhakulii
Back in the good ol days (1980’s...!!) these plants were a dime a dozen. Suddenly they were unobtainable and no one could find any for sale. These plants are easy to grow, quick to bloom from the flask and always an attractive species to see in flower.

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING:
The entire orchid world is crazy over the flavacolor hybrids, so why not make a few more!

Phragmipedium Jason Fischer
(Mem. Dick Clements ‘Rocket Flash’ [4N] x besseae ‘Cow Hollow II’ FCC/AOS)
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: In my years of Phragmipedium breeding I have made this cross using several different varieties of Phragmipedium besseae.

Phragmipedium Les Platons [4N]
(Hanne Popow ‘Jersey’ AM/RHS [4N] x Beauport ‘Rose Rocket’ [4N])
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: This is a hybrid that is rarely ever seen since it’s registration back in 2001 and I cannot figure out why. This is a small to compact growing plant that produces very fine formed flowers in appealing soft pinks to pale purples. These will also be rapid healthy growers with the tetraploid parents on both sides!

Phragmipedium Magdalene Rose [4N]
(Eric Young ‘Rocket Fire’ [4N] x Beauport ‘Rose Flare’ [4N])
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: This beautiful hybrid is named after my wonderful late mother, Magdalene Rose Acker. In this remake of the hybrid, I used a darker form of the tetraploid Beauport anticipating the progeny to show a tad more permeation of rose red in the flowers. It’s hard to imagine an improvement on this beauty but I’m always willing to give it a try.

Phragmipedium Mem. John Fortunio - flavacolor
(Conchiferum x besseae var. flavum ‘Chuck’s Choice’ AM/AOS)
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: This hybrid will produce flowers very similar to that of the Phragmipedium Eric Young - flavacolor. Here in using the Conchiferum instead of longifolium will positively keep the ultimate plant size much smaller. Also, using the flavum besseae will definitely soften up the color as well.
