    Default Phragmipedium dalessandroi

    Was formerly considered by some to be a variety of besseae, but the staminode is quite different, making the separation valid.

    Two siblings from the same seed capsule - 'Acker's Flamenco Dancer' x 'Firefly'

    The flowers are just wonderful and I used to grow besseae myself.

    But the way besseae and, I assume, dalessandroi grows poses a problem to me. Every new growth takes a step upwards and the plant will look a bit funny after a couple of years unless you figure out a way to deal with it.
