Phragmipedium Eric Young 4N x Grande 4N
The "4N" in the name represents that both parents of this cross were tetraploid plants. A tetraploid has double the normal DNA chromosome count, often resulting in improvements in flower size, color and substance. The flowers on this Phrag are without a doubt much larger than any others in our collection. Flowered here March 2004.
