Description


Rare and sought after 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, as well as enabling production at a level whereby it can be offered for sale. As such, we are delighted to bring you this extraordinary plant, each one a triumphant symbol of survival against the odds. Flowers are borne from June to August, consisting of three twisted, purple-brown petals above a large, golden yellow slipper-shaped 'pouch'. Prefers moist, fertile, leafy, slightly alkaline soil in a sheltered, partially shaded location. H&S: 50cm x 10cm. Hardy perennial.
