Tell Me More...
Once widespread across Europe, Cypripedium calceolus is today classed as an endangered species in the wild. Spectacular in its beauty, this slipper orchid was (and remains) highly prized by plant collectors, leading to plundering on a scale which, over the course of a few centuries, has driven it to the brink of extinction. Fortunately, advances in micropropagation have ensured conservation of the species and will ensure this beauty remains for years to come. As well as enabling production at an expanded level whereby it can now be offered for sale to the public. As such, we are delighted to bring you this extraordinary plant, each one a triumphant and beautiful symbol of survival against the odds. Flowers are borne from June to August and consist of three twisted, purple-brown petals above a large, golden yellow slipper-shaped 'pouch'. Cypripedium calceolus is truly a rare and exciting stunner for the avid gardener who loves something 'just a bit different'.Prefers moist, fertile, leafy, slightly alkaline soil in a sheltered, partially shaded location. H&S: 50cm x 10cm. Hardy perennial.
