So, you think you're a good gardener? If you can grow the dwarf Cypripedium debile, welcome to an exclusive club. This Japanese native makes a tiny clump, composed of two 1.5" long glossy green leaves, topped in spring with a pendent stalk holding an equally teeny-tiny white flower, highlighted by light green sepals. In the garden, Cypripedium debile needs an organically rich, slightly moist, but well-drained soil, and please keep other more aggressive plants at bay. These are blooming-sized plants, but you can still fit a half dozen of 'em on a hamburger bun...just don't.
