Hardy Orchid Cypripedium reginae Plants

Hardy Orchid Cypripedium reginae Plants £39.99
Over the last few years the cultivation of the hardy slipper orchid has made great progress and the production of reliable ranges of cypripedium are underway in Europe and North America. Much simpler to grow, not needing experience and specific growing conditions, meaning you don’t have to be an orchid expert to get a beautiful show in your garden from these spectacular plants. The orchid we are offering to you is the well known Cypripedium reginae, the Queen Lady’s Slipper. This exquisite variety has some of the largest and showiest blooms of the cypripedium, with pure white petals that hover above the fuchsia flushed ‘slipper’ and is perhaps the most spectacular of the Cypripedium! The root supplied is already six seasons old so will produce strong rich green foliage of up to 50cm (20″) and it is from this foliage that one or more of the beautiful blooms will be borne. The flowering time for this orchid is from mid June. As the plant becomes established in the garden the rhizomes will spread to form spectacular clumps, or if you can’t wait then plant in groups of three or more. The beauty of hardy orchids surpasses many of their tropical cousins, so be warned – growing hardy orchids is addictive! Height 50cm (20″). Flowering from mid June-July.. 3 Bare Root Plants – SAVE £10.98!. Full growing instructions included.. . 41-50CM. . Ideal for beds, borders and patio containers. Grows well in sun or shade.
