The showy lady slipper is one of the most abundant Northeast US native orchid species. In June, Cypripedium reginae emerges with 18" tall stalks, each clothed in oblong velvety leaves. From mid-June to July, the stems are topped with exquisite slipper flowers...white petals at the top with a pink slipper attached below. In time, Cypripedium reginae will develop into quite a large clump. Cypripedium reginae prefers a partially open site with a moist, neutral or slightly acid soil. Cypripedium reginae and other ladyslippers are not plants for beginning gardeners. These are all seed-grown, nursery-propagated plants.
