Phragmipedium Cardinale 'Birchwood'
Phragmipedium Cardinale 'Birchwood' is an awarded clone of an older Phragmipedium hybrid. It is a hybrid of Phragmipedium schlimii and Phragmipedium Sedenii. It is a smaller Phragmipedium and does well in a saucer of water (so that it is soaking wet at all times) and on a bathroom windowsill. It blooms several times a year for us. The flowers are 6 cm and bloom successively, two or three to a flower spike.
