9781842464649: Hardy Cypripedium: Species, Hybrids and Cultivation

With a name that references Aphrodite and colors that range from muted to majestic, it is easy to see why the Cypripedium, commonly known as the slipper orchid, is one of the most loved orchids. Now readers can learn what it takes to fully appreciate and care for this genus.

Hardy Cypripedium presents the fifty species and one hundred hybrids of the slipper orchid through more than three hundred photos. It also provides plant descriptions, ecology, distribution, and cultivation methods. Sections on history, morphology, and conservation round out the guide. Professional and amateur growers, as well as fans of orchids of all types, will find a wealth of useful information in this beautiful book.

About the Author:

Werner Frosch is the leading breeder of Cypripedium hybrids. Phillip Cribb is a leading specialist on the taxonomy and conservation of orchids. He was deputy keeper of the Herbarium and curator of the Orchid Herbarium, both at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Review:

"This book merits five stars and more! Whether one is an orchid scientist, a hobbyist, or merely a wildflower enthusiast, this is an outstanding treatment of the Cypripedium slipper orchids." (McAllen International Orchid Society Journal)
