Cypripedium japonicum Blooming Size Dormant roots
Zone 4 – 8
This stunning Japanese native will take your breath away. Pink flowers are held 10” – 12” above pleated, fan like leaves. Considered by some to be a bit tricky to grow, make sure you supply perfect drainage and good rich organic soil. Plant in part sun to part shade but never mid day sun for best growth and bloom. Allow a couple of years to establish. Does well on gentle slopes and where the soil stays cool and moist.
