Cypripedium 'Aki'

(C. macranthos x C. pubescens)

This hybrid form tends to have very large flowers with light pink pouches and burgundy and cream streaked petals and sepals. Flower size and color does vary somewhat. We have seen some variation in our new batches that include light and dark pink, even some creamy yellow streaked with pink. It is the first to bloom here at the nursery with C. 'Gisela' flowering just behind it.

Zones 3-6. 16-24 in. Light shade, cool moist rich well-drained soil.

We are offering 2 sizes:

  • Blooming-sized plants have at least one large blooming stem and well-developed root system.
  • Near-Blooming plants have a well-developed root system and are at least 1-2 years away from blooming.
