Our native Cypripedium is not easy to grow over time. It needs a cold not interupted winter rest, and cool air in summer. We advice protection against winter rain.

Soils have to be alkaline clay with stone ships for drainage, and if possble in neighbourhood of Fagus and Pinus sylvestris.

For coastal regions we advice to grow Cypripedium calceolus x parviflorum wich is far more resistant .
