Phragmipedium Baby B
(Demetria ‘Mem. Don Walklet’ HCC/AOS x besseae ‘Cow Hollow II’ FCC/AOS)

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: I had first made this cross in 2006 and was pleasantly surprised how quick they bloomed out of the flask. These are relatively compact growers with medium height spikes producing sizeable flowers with amazingly wide petal span! This all makes for a great looking presentation.

Phragmipedium Don Wimber - flavacolor
(Eric Young ‘Rocket Fire’ [4N] x besseae var. flavum ‘Rob’)
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: Phragmipedium Don Wimber is no doubt one of the all-time favorites among us Phragmipedium lovers and has garnished more AOS awards than nearly any other hybrid to date. In the past years I have grown and flowered hundreds of these. I can say with no uncertainty that when the flavum form of besseae is used as a parent the outcome of the flower size and shape is much improved! And we are all still looking for that elusive yellow flower, such as one pictured here that I bloomed back in 2002!

Phragmipedium Ely’s Colombian Pride
(schlimii ‘Isolde’ x andreettae)

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: It really doesn’t get a whole lot cuter than this! A great big Thank You goes out to Eliseo Teson who bred and named this little cutie and who also provided me with this beautiful image to use on this list. The hybrid is pictured here made with Phragmipedium andreettae as the pod parent, however, I am offering the cross made with Phragmipedium schlimii as the pod parent in hopes to lend a bit more color saturation to the progeny.

Phragmipedium Lilith
(manzurii ‘Waunakee’ x andreettae)

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING:
These two relatively new species have just recently been mated and the cross has now been named! Be the first on your block to have the latest in primary Phragmipedium hybrids. These will be very small growing and incredibly cute, as well as extremely quick to bloom from the flask!

Phragmipedium Lucky Girl
(Twilight ‘Rising Rocket’ [4N] AM/AOS x Acker’s Ballerina)
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: A remake of another popular hybrid I initially made in 2016! This cross produced an interesting display of dark pink to red flowers bearing larger than normal petals. Many plants produced petals with a fascinating down-sweeping of the tips, something few other hybrids have shown.

Phragmipedium Mother Rose
(Magdalene Rose ‘Mother’ [4N] x caudatum var. giganteum)

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: I originally made this cross in 2006 using a standard form of Phragmipedium caudatum. Here I have used the exceptionally large flowered Phragmipedium caudatum v. giganteum and will be looking to increase the overall size of the flowers, with special emphasis on the petals and pouch.

Phragmipedium Ouaisne
(Eric Young ‘Rocket Fire’ [4N] x dalessandroi ‘Acker’s Flamenco Dancer’)
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: Pronounced way-nee, this hybrid is named after a popular southwest facing beach on the Isle of Jersey, UK. I can see the beautiful sunset colors that may have inspired the naming of this amazing hybrid. In this cross I am making an effort to significantly improve the progeny by using my incredible branching Phragmipedium dalessandroi clone of ‘Acker’s Flamenco Dancer!

Phragmipedium Petit Port
(Hanne Popow ‘Jersey’ AM/RHS [4N] x schlimii ‘Isolde’)

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING:
An extremely popular hybrid when seen on any sales table or in anyone’s collection! In remaking this beautiful union I am looking to improve the overall flower quality by using my magnificent awarded parent of Phragmipedium Hanne Popow ‘Jersey’ AM/RHS [4N].

Phragmipedium Priscilla’s Pirouette
(Acker’s Ballerina x dalessandroi)

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING:
A proven hybrid that I originally made in 2014 and has been requested to be brought back. So, here it is! This time I have used the Phragmipedium Acker’s Ballerina as the pod parent to give these flowers a better overall shape. These will be small growing plants with some good sized flowers for the size of the plant, as well as producing prolific branching stems!

Phragmipedium Professor Braem
(longifolium var. album x manzurii ‘Waunakee’)
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: This proven hybrid is absolutely gorgeous! I had initially offered this hybrid in 2014 before it was named Phragmipedium Professor Braem. When I receive a picture from one of my customers who had just flowered one, I was extremely pleased. Such a soft presentation of color, and a very prolific bloomer as well!

Phragmipedium Shimmer
(Twilight ‘Rising Rocket’ AM/AOS [4N] x schlimii ‘Isolde’)

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: Beautiful shades of light lavender/purple arise from this already praiseworthy hybrid! These flowers present themselves with a glistening sheen overlaid on their petals and sepals. The overall size of the plant is sized down with the influence of the small growing species of Phragmipedium schlimii as a parent.

Phragmipedium Ruby Slippers
(caudatum x besseae ‘Cow Hollow II’ FCC/AOS)

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: This hybrid was among the first of the great Phragmipedium besseae hybrids to be named back in 1991! Although it is an older hybrid, it is still one of the finest in long petal reds yet today. Here in using my FCC besseae we will still see an improvement on this great Phragmipedium hybrid.

Phragmipedium
Acker’s Lovely ‘Essence’ x Acker’s Ballerina
‘Bubblegum’
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: These two parental clones are among my favorites of my collection. Whenever they are in bloom they captivate you and draw your eye in for a closer look. Mating these two will no doubt result in that same outcome. Soft pink and somewhat two-toned, these flowers will be of decent size and born on compact growing plants which will often produce branching stems!

Phragmipedium
Acker’s Lovely ‘Essence’ x Fall River ‘Purple Passion’

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: Yes, you are seeing a plethora of these smaller growing cute little hybrids on my list this year and yes, it will be difficult to choose between any of them! The idea in having these small growing and profuse blooming hybrids is to have multiple different crosses of this breeding in very small spaces! Phragmipedium Fall River is new for my breeding program and I am quite certain we will see a wonderful array of colors and fast growing plants from its implementation.

‘Acker’s Dawn’
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: An exciting new hybrid with the domination of small growing genetics from Phragmipedium fischeri and Phragmipedium manzurii! Although these plants will be compact and small, the flowers will remain quite sizeable with short and in many cases, branching stems!

Acker’s Sunbeam ‘Radiance’ x dalessandroi
‘Acker's Flamenco Dancer’
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING:
The Phragmipedium Acker’s Sunbeam (Asuko Fischer x Waunakee Sunset) is a darling hybrid, producing an array of colors among the progeny. I chose to breed with this peach colored clone as I felt there are few Phragmipedium hybrids of this color being used in breeding today. These will be small growing plants with sizeable flowers for the scale of the plant, as well as the tendency to produce branching stems!

Phragmipedium
Apple Pie ‘Mom’s Specialty’ HCC/AOS x Acker’s Lovely ‘Essence’

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: Due to the reluctance of my awarded Phragmipedium Apple Pie to make viable seed, very few crosses have ever been seen using it as a parent. This rare new hybrid will be attention-grabbing in producing above average size flowers on quite small growing plants. And also hoping to see those impressive bi-colored and two toned flowers as well!

Phragmipedium
Autumn Fire ‘Colorstorm’ x Fall River ‘Purple Passion’

Barbara LeAnn ‘Pink Doll’ x Fall River
‘Purple Passion’
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: This cutting edge new hybrid is utilizing the very latest parent of Phragmipedium Fall River (Petite Port x fischeri) which was just recently registered in 2017! This combination will be dominated by the stunning near purple color genetics of Phragmipedium fischeri and will no doubt generate marvelous dark purple flowers with exceptional shape and confirmation. These will also be small growing plants capable of multi-growth and multi-spike in four inch pots. They will be fast growing and bloom in less than 18 months from the flask!

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: Phragmipedium Barbara LeAnn is widely used in breeding and the results are always first class. Phragmipedium manzurii is constantly proving itself to be an advantageous parent in every new hybrid it is incorporated with. I have high expectations in flower shape with this brand new hybrid.

Phragmipedium
besseae ‘Firehouse’ x Fall River ‘Purple Passion’
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: Very few flasks of this cross are available due to the fact Phragmipedium besseae as a maternal parent doesn’t offer a high number of seed in those little pods. This cross will be amazing, as the high quality flower attributes of this maternal parent will be passed on to the majority of the progeny. Do not let this one go by without trying one of the few flasks available!

Waunakee Sunset ‘Cherry’ x besseae ‘Paute’

EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: I am particularly excited about this new hybrid using the rare Paute form of Phragmipedium besseae! The Paute variety grows without any elongated stolon or runner between growths. Therefore the plant stays in the pot and the growths remain very close together. This characteristic will no doubt be passed on to the progeny. These will be small growing plants capable of multi-growth and multi-spike in four inch pots. They will also be fast growing and bloom in less than 18 months from the flask!
