    Phragmipedium "Hanne Popow" besseae var. flavum(yellow) x schlimii

    This is my first Phragmipedium going in the flower ... but I bought it with the spike in the current year from eBay.
    I bought it as Phrag. "Erik Young," but it was something else .... and I am very pleased and especially that they had chosen bessaea was. flavum (yellow) as one of the parents!

    "Marni" Yes, thank you ..... I thought the flowers would be slightly larger (5.2 broad spike 27 cm) but it must compliment the sera with a bit more flowers, I hope ... but this is the first flowering of this plant, so it is certainly better!

    Thank you all for the kind received!
    Now for spring to start the search for some special Phragmipedium, which I have on my list!
