Tell Me More...
Native to woodlands across North America, Cypripedium pubescens is a big, bold slipper orchid, which, once established, will form a large, striking clump of up to 20 blooms at a time. Flowers, present throughout spring, consist of three twisted, or 'corkscrew', olive-brown petals, above a lemon-yellow, slipper-shaped 'pouch', with red spots in its throat. Foliage is soft, ovate, and not dissimilar in appearance to that of Solomon's seal. This hardy, terrestrial orchid will make an impressive and long-lived addition to a shady rock garden, woodland garden, or container display. Prefers moist, fertile, humus-rich, slightly alkaline soil in a sheltered, partially shaded location. Provide an annual winter mulch of leaf mould for best results. H&S: 50cm x 10cm. Hardy perennial.
