Cypripedium Kentucky In Flower

It took a while but the flowers on Cypripedium Kentucky have finally opened up. I am pleasantly surprised really. These flowers are really big with the pouch looking like a creme coloured egg (it is about that size too). The maroon petals provide a really nice contrast. It is a shame the plant is a bit floppy. This is probably due to the fact that it grew in a greenhouse before coming home with me. Providing it survives I expect the growth to be more sturdy next year. Cypripedium Pueblo has now finished flowering and Cypripedium Reginae is just starting growth so with a bit of luck I will able to admire Cypripedium blooms for some time to come.
