Product Details
Leaves on this Orchid are finely covered with hairs, soft green, around 15 cms long and maybe 7 cms wide, the whole joined to an erect stem which reaches up to around 45 cms high or so. This rises from a rhizome which grows slowly beneath the soil surface and the plant will eventually make a clump in time. The flower consists of 3 upper petals which in this case are twisted, greenish-pink and white in colour. The larger part is made up of a single flower part called a lower lip and this new hybrid has a palest creamy or yellow colour to it. These plants prefer a loose open soil and in the garden the soil can be opened up using shredded bark, perlite or even coarse grit. A position in moist but well drained soil suits best with moderate fertility, and preferably sited in morning sun but shaded for the rest of the day. If this is not available then a spot in dappled shade all day will suffice.
  Can vary from cream to yellow in the flower colour. Cypripedium Aki Pastel x kentuckyense
