Cypripedium 'Barry Phillips' ( C. fasciolatum x C. segawai, 2013) is another interesting cross of Asian parents, combining the yellow-green color scheme and chance for multiple flowers of Taiwanese C. segawai with the larger lip of the Chinese C. fasciolatum. One of the early hybrids, opening up about 2 weeks after Cypripedium formosanum. While not difficult regarding growing conditions, this hybrid has been challenging for Martin Bohnet, as it seems to be extraordinarily popular with slugs and catarpillars, so the photos show his first unharmed flower in two years - and one which hasn't been that lucky.
