two years or more out of flask

Our fabulous native Cypripedium is not very easy to grow over time. It needs a cold not interupted winter rest, and cool humid air in summer. We advice protection against winter rain. Seed origin, western EU, fairly adapted  to maritime climate.

Soils neede to be alkaline with good drainage, and if possble in neighbourhood of Fagus and Pinus sylvestris. Keep dormand as long as possible with cover of styros and gel packs on warm winter days.

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