Cypripedium Concolor Drawing

The cypripedium concolor, an orchid found by one botanist growing naturally in Myanmar. He described it as a distinctly marked plant with variegated leaves and maroon speckled, cream-colored flowers. He had found it growing among limestone rocks and suggested that it might do better with the addition of limestone. Our botanical cypripedium concolor drawing is sadly only in black and white but that leaves it ready for you to add its natural colors or any colors you would choose.

This orchid drawing dates back to 1871 when it was included in an orchid growing manual written by Benjamin Samuel Williams (1822-1890).
