Cypripedium “Kentucky Maxi”: C. kentuckiense x C. fasciolatum – 2 plugs per pot
Color: White flowers
These plants prefer to grow in a slightly shaded spot, although several hours of sun or full shade are also tolerated. Under shrubs or trees or in the North, West or East position in the garden. Cypripedium is not too picky, although these plants prefer an alkaline type of soil. If possible, dig some substrate, fine gravel or coarse sand through the area where the plants will be placed. If necessary, some lime can also be mixed into the soil. In principle, the other treatment does not differ from other garden plants: fertilize in the spring, possibly again later for extra leaf and root growth.
