Phragmipedium kovachii & amp; Hybrids

Phragmipedium kovachii is one of the most exciting finds to enter the world of orchid horticulture in recent history. I am pleased to announce that we are the first American nursery to be actively propagating and hybridizing this great new species from Peru.

This has been a project that we have been working on since May 2003, when Alfredo Manrique, owner of Manrique Garden Center, Lima, Peru, was granted the first permit to collect the five plants that we are presently working with. Since that time, three companies have formed an exclusive partnership for the US, European and Asian markets to make this all happen, one from Peru and the other two from the United States.

Phrag. Very large flowers ranging in size from 6 "to over 9" in.

# 740SPECIES: ('Laura' X 'Ana' some cases. These are not as difficult to grow as you might think, however they are very slow to get going, you just need some patience. View more images here
