Cypripedium 'Sarah Louise'

(C. Ulla Silkens x C. reginae)

Sarah Louise has reginae back-crossed into Ulla Silkens, which is C. flavum x C. reginae. I like trying back-crosses and this one has done well. It has maintained the strong growth habit of the first cross and has produced a wide range of blooms -- from pure white to light pink, white with pink spotting, all the way to deep pink. Easier to grow than straight C. reginae, these will form large clumps reaching up to 24 inches tall. This is an end-of-the-season bloomer.

Zones 3-6. 13-24 in. Light shade, cool moist rich well-drained soil.

We are offering XL Blooming-sized plants with at least one large blooming stem and well-developed root system.

Please be aware that with C.reginae and its crosses, it is very hard to tell if a plant is going to re-bloom in the coming season simply by looking at the dormant plant in the fall. We do our best to pick blooming plants, but they are not guaranteed to bloom.
