    Default Help with Cypripedium ID.

    I have about 8 or 10 different cypropediums and somehow I managed to lose the label for this one. Does anybody have any idea of which hybrid this could be?

    Can't help you on the name, but it's sure pretty.

    Yey! I found the label this morning while watering and moving some of the pleiones. I keep the pleiones in a shed that has windows all along one the sides and this is also where I overwinter the cypripediums so that they don't get rained on during their dormancy. The label must have fallen out sometime during the winter or when I moved the cypripediums outside a few weeks ago.

    It's Cypripedium Renate Pastel.

    Glad you found the name tag. What a beautiful cypripedium. I wish I had a few of these.

    cheers,
