Cypripedium have had a long-standing reputation for being fussy, if not impossible, to cultivate. It has only been in the past 30 years that germination and techniques for cultivation have evolved to the point that these plants could be offered commercially. With close to 200 hybrids and increasing, now is the best time to get growing. Currently three clones have been trademarked and there are still more to come. Species from China, Europe and North America have been hybridized to give the adventurous gardener endless options of different colours, shapes and sizes. Growers can even extend their flowering season by growing late flowering species like kentuckiense, reginae, and the hybrids that they produce.
