We are so pleased to be able to offering seed-grown plants of the amazing Cypripedium kentuckiense, which we've grown in our garden for more than two decades! Native from Virginia west to Texas, the southeastern native Cypripedium kentuckiense has performed wonderfully for us, making large 18"+ tall clumps, topped in early- to mid-May with large, creamy, pocketbook-shaped flowers, highlighted by dark purple twisted sepals, in turn adorned with yellow flecking. Slightly moist, organically rich soils are needed for best performance of Kentucky ladyslipper orchids. Our plants are all flowering size.

Planting your Cypripedium orchid.
