One of the few hybrids we have made twice. Deperle is normally white. We make it using the vinicolor form of delenatii and the purpurascens form of primulinum. The result is this delightful pink flower that will carry three on the second bloom. We are offering these as first bloom seedlings that came out of […]

Lehua Orchids is the most awarded active hybridizer of Slipper Orchids. Its goal is to be the No. 1 all time. Currently it is No. 4 all time
OrchidWiz X5.3 “list” shows the “hybridizers with the most awarded hybrids”. Refining that search to “Paphs, Phrags, Cypripediums” shows Lehua Orchids in fourth place with 182 awarded hybrids.
The three hybridizers ahead of Lehua Orchids are no longer active. The most awarded is Rod McClellan with 202; followed by Radcliffe at 201 and Terry Root at 193.
With your continued help we can make No. 1 very soon. Over 40% of those awards are to you, our customers, or to your customers and not to Lehua Orchids. Keep exhibiting our Slippers, PLEASE!

It is time to brag! Not about the awards we have garnered and they are plenty, over 300 and counting, but about our ranking on the all-time list of “hybridizers with the most hybrids awarded” This data comes from OrchidWiz X5.3.
We have discontinued carrying Masdevallias. We simply lost interest in them. However we have kept our Keeper Bench plants just in case we change our minds.
Our second ever AQ (includes 2 AMs and 2 HCCs in a group of 15 exhibited). We bred Peach Fuzz ‘Golden Giant’ FCC/AOS on to Keiko Komoda in an attempt to get more flowers and more frequent flowerings. What we got amazed us. We did achieve more flowers and more often but with flowers that […]
‘Gary Baker’ is perhaps the finest veitchiana we have seen that does not have an award. It clearly deserves one. ‘Blaze’ is an amazing example, slightly smaller, but with color that is both vivid and different. Many of the progeny follow ‘Blaze’ for coloration and ‘Gary Baker’ for size
Very similar breeding to Peach Fuzz and the flowers look very much alike.
Two awards for this clone already, even though AQ+ as of 4.5 shows only one. Most are beautifully striped like the picture. Others have intriguingly different coloration
We have been testing a 15 pack box and have had good feed-back. So we are making this half size box available to everyone. There is a handling charge of $1.50 per plant ($22.50 for a box of 15 plants). This increases our Price Point Paphs to $10 per plant, delivered and Select to $13 […]
The cd we had offered to societies has become a little dated. It is still available if you are really in need of something, but we would rather not. Unfortunately Graham’s son has gone on to greater things and is no longer interested in producing a new cd. However if we can work out timing […]
You are welcome to use any of the photographs on the website. Credit is not necessary; we do not want your customers coming to us! We only use photographs we have taken of our flowers. We do not “borrow” photographs. There will be times when we do not have a photograph on the website, but […]

We made divisions from our great Keeper Bench plant. This plant was awarded a Certificate of Cultural Merit. It is easy to grow and can clearly earn many more cultural awards for other growers.
Great Dean Haas shaped flowers with lots of color including many reds. Then again you get some like the photo that was awarded January 2012. We love the variety than occurs in seed crosses
Tall orange and red flowers. Very prolific
