    Default Phrag. Eric Young photo

    I gave this plant to my mother a couple years ago because it was getting too big for its britches, so to speak. A total weed.

    My brief description of the grex that is paraphrased in a number of ebay auctions:

    Registered in 1991, Phrag. Eric Young was part of the first wave of hybrids utilizing the brilliant Phrag. besseae. For a hundred years, the phragmipedium color palette had been limited to the subdued hues of green, gold, and pink, and hybridizing in the genus had all but stalled. However, the discovery of the red/orange besseae in the 1980s rekindled interest in the genus and set off a flurry of hybridizing that continues to this day. Phrag. Eric Young produces flowers that range from a light peach to a rich salmon in color, and is a much more vigorous grower than its besseae parent.
