calceolus x parviflorum
W. Frosch 1993
This outstanding cross from the native lady's slipper Cypripedium calceolous with Cypripedium parviflorum is also due to the orchid grower Werner Frosch. 'Emil' is very similar in appearance to the native lady's slipper, but much more robust in the garden than the natural form.
'Emil' often produces 2 flowers on a stalk.
Height: 20 - 40 cm
Flowering time: May
Strong rhizome with at least 2 flowering shoots
Available in Autumn 2021!
