I thought I would share some pictures of some of my Cypripediums growing in my gardens at the Airstream Park (that is where I have my Airstream in the Summer months). I have had these gardens for about 10 years. I have 2 clumps of the pink Cyp. reginae, Cyp. reginae album, Cyp. parviflorum, Cyp. candidum, Cyp. Ulla Silkens, and Cyp. Aki.

One of my Cyp. regianae:

Wonderful shade garden, Robert. I love hosta as well,
especially the large blue hostas. The Cyps are pristine.
How do you manage to keep slugs and snails out of your
garden? My perennials are mostly shade as well and it's
not easy to make a really well-balanced shade garden.
You've a good eye!

The cyps are beautiful. I am always envious of those on the forum that grow cyps. It gets so hot here, that I don't think I would ever try them. Your yard at the airstream park is lovely! So well manicured!

Thanks! I don't know if it is because we are far enough north, but we don't really have an issue with slugs and snails (at least I don't) that eat plants here in Minnesota. The only pests that we have are rabbits, squirrels and sometimes deer.

What a beautiful and relaxing garden. Lovely Cyps and your Hostas are fabulous!

I was at our local garden centre yesterday and they had a tiny, blue/green leaf Hosta called 'Mouse Ears'. It was so small and cute....thinking of going back to get it.

Wendy, Mouse Ears is a wonderful little hosta. Go get a
few. I plant them in groups of three in front of my large
hostas and they are enchanting.

I agree! I also have "Blue Mouse Ears"
