Hello Sophisticated Gardeners,

Our Cypripedium hardy lady's slipper orchids are beginning to emerge and are now available at the nursery.

We have a huge selection of more than 30 different types. Our plants are top quality divisions, most of which have multiple eyes and some of which have up to 8 to 10 eyes! Usually Cyps are priced at $40-$100 per eye so these represent great deals with all of our plants between $54.99 and $109.99!

Subscribers of the Rare Plant and Made in the Shade Alerts are the first to be notified so now is your chance to take advantage of getting these huge divisions for your gardens.

It is spring at Phoenix perennials and there are lots of beautiful and fragrant things to experience! Come down for a visit!

Yours in cool plants,

Gary and the Phoenicians

Cypripedium Lady's Slippers
31 Different Hardy Orchids for Canadian Gardens

We are excited to offer our largest selection ever of hardy lady's slipper orchids for Canadian gardens. These Cypripedium hybrids possess hybrid vigour -- they have inherited the best traits of both parents -- and are much easier to grow than species orchids, have beautiful flowers in amazing colours, and clump up very quickly into amazing displays in the part shade garden. They bloom in late April and May offering an exquisite show in the garden.

Most are "officially" hardy to zone 4 while some are hardy to zone 3 and even zone 2! Even the zone 4 plants may be hardy in protected spots in zone 3 with mulch and good snow cover. Indeed, we have customers in Alberta and Saskatchewan who are growing Cypripedium outdoors with great success.

These plants are available now on site at the nursery. Here they are:
