Lady's slippers are especially decorative in combination with foliage plants such as ferns and hostas. They all prefer half-shade. Cypripediums can also grow in the open shade on the north-facing side of a building. Please make sure that the garden orchids won't be overgrown by adjacent plants. Lady's slippers do not tolerate fast-growing neighbours and the competition of tree roots.
Please note our planting advice. You can also watch videos.
You can find further fascinating photos of hardy garden orchids from our fans around the world on the Frosch® Exclusive Perennials Facebook page. Always worth a visit!
