Cypripedium hybrids by species

In the following table, each hybrid partner is listed in the left-most column, alphabetically. In the second column, the other hybrid partner is listed. Some of the other partners contain more than one species, separated by hyphens; this indicates complex hybrids.

The table lists named hybrids in one row, and each of the partners making up the hybrid in separate rows. This is to make it easy to scan down the list and find all hybrid partners.

For example, in the hybrids of Cyp. calceolus, there are three separate rows for the hybrid between Cyp. calceolus and Cyp. Gisela, which is itself a hybrid of Cyp. macranthos and Cyp. parviflorum:

  • calceolus x Gisela
  • calceolus x macranthos - parviflorum (Gisela)
  • calceolus x parviflorum - macranthos (Gisela)

Each one of these rows describes the hybrid Cyp. Lisbeth.

Notes:

Cyp margaritaceum is listed as a parent for Cyp Fantasy. However, the actual parent plant was later identified as Cyp lichiangense.

Cyp froschii was described as a species: Cyp froschii Perner Orchidee (Hamburg) Suppl 6:10 (1999), later considered a hybrid, and according to the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families as a synonym of Cyp tibeticum: Cyp tibeticum King ex Rolfe J. Linn. Soc., Bot. 29:320 (1892).
