The Lady Slipper Orchid Paphiopedilum Pink Lemonade is a terrrestrial growing orchid hybrid, a crossing between Paphiopedilum Lemonade (Paph. spicerianum x Paph. primulinum) and Paphiopedilum charlesworthii. As we found the beautiful pink lady slipper orchid hybrid at the 2012 orchid exhibition in honour to the birthday of H.M. Queen Sirikit of Thailand in Chiang Mai, North Thailand, it was fortunatly labeled with the parentage. We tried to find a registration with The International Orchid Register at the Royal Horticultural Society, but the hybrid isn´t registered yet. We found the name Pink Lemonade at an Japanese website, which showed an orchid with the same parentage, but a much more gloomy appearance. Flowers get a size of about 8 cm.
Flowering period: Summer – Autumn.
