Finally, after years of growing Cypripedium kentuckiense in our gardens, we are able to share nursery seed-grown flowering plants! 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.
