Photo Gallery 7 - Phragmipedium
Phagmipedium are the Central and South American "Lady Slipper" orchids. The species generally come from mountainous areas of moderate to cool temperatures with lots of moisture. Some species even grow in the middle of streams and waterfalls. Most are moderate to large plants, but there are a few miniature species as well. We also include here the monotypic genus Mexipedium, a single miniature rare species from one remote mountain in Mexico. Man has made many hybrids to increase the size and improve the color forms.
