    Cypripedium subtropicum - signs of seedling life

    Cyp subtropicum is a dream plant for Cyp growers. Years ago, I, like many others, was able to obtain some seed which germinated but the seedlings never thrived in flask and I lost them. A couple of years ago Wenqing Perner offered deflasked seedlings. The seedlings were of excellent quality...

    Warm-growing Cypripediums?

    I have grown Cyp's in very hot summer temperatures in Connecticut - every year a few days over 100 F. The albaflora Cyp reginae clump at the top of the Cypripedium sales page at gardensatposthill.net was next to a stone wall facing due West and its oak tree shading was lost when the oak fell...

    Our brightest native: Platanthera peramoena

    Beautiful! I have only seen these one time and the coloration of the flowers was magnificient. I have always wished I could get my hands on some seed as most Platanthera are pretty easy to grow from seed. Ray Price in Ohio has raised many thousands of Platanthera. I dont know if he is doing...

    Cypripedium Anita

    Here is Cyp Anita that I purchased from Anthura last year. It is a hybrid of Cyp formosanum and californicum. Like all formosanum hybrids I have seen the leaves are quite wide although without the formosanum pleats. Also, like all formosanum hybrids, the flowers are essentially identical to...

    Cypripedium Huanglong Love

    I purchased two of Wenqing Perner's new hybrid, Huanglong Love (xventricosum x tibeticum) a few months ago. A lovely complex hybrid of (calceolus x macranthos) x tibeticum. I am told that these two plants are pod siblings - certainly xventricosum is quite varied in its clones - solid red...

    Yet another potted beauty! Extremely good husbandry for a species that is far from the easiest to grow.

    Where to buy Cypripedium’s?

    Hi, This is Ron Burch from Gardens at Post Hill. We did not have a Spring list this year for a couple of reasons. First, with so many people at home, last year was a banner year (in speaking to others who sell Cyp's it was a banner year for everyone in the US, Europe and Asia) and I sold out...

    Where to buy Cypripedium’s?

    I received some subtropicum seedlings in 2019 from Hengduan - a few are still alive. I also received some in Fall 2020. They are extremely nice quality seedlings - now to figure out how to keep them alive long enough to bloom!

    Most elegant hybrid Cyp flower - Cyp xcolumbianum

    I am always happy when these bud, I have two of them. I know the flowers will be great every year. Very similar to the tiny jewel flowers of montanum but with somewhat lighter sepals. A real joy to view.

    Cypripedium Schoko

    Easier than any shanxiense I have had. Having said that I have never received shanxiense in excellent condition, even from Anthura. They just don’t seem to ship well. Schoko is similar to calceolus in ease of maintenance.
