Cypripedium Gift Pack – Mixed Tones – 3


This Cypripedium Starter Pack includes a mix of 3 different Pseudobulbs each flowering with mixed colors. The blooms of these temperate Cypripedium orchids, also known as Slipper Orchids, are nothing short of flamboyant. With their inflated lower petals they are truly the king of the hardy orchid. They prefer to grow in a slightly shady spot, although a few hours of sun or full shade are also tolerated. Under bushes or trees or North, West or East facing positions, they are not picky. Alternatively you can keep these Cypripediums in a spacious pot in suitable compost.  Intense colors, delicate markings and unusually shaped petals make these ideal display plants.  For more information see: Orchid Care, Publications and Quality.
