Phragmipedium kovachii & Hybrids

Phragmipedium kovachii is one of the most exciting finds to enter the world of orchid horticulture in recent history. I'm 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've been working on since May of 2003, when Alfredo Manrique, owner of Centro de Jardineria Manrique, 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.
