Gardeners' Notes:

I recommend this Ladyslipper to beginners. It grows well in many different conditions, and although the blossoms are somewhat reminiscent of a bloodshot eye, they are attractive in their own way. I have mine in a well drained pumice/coir/loam mixture, in half sun. Comes up in late April and is a vigorous grower. Price is dropping due to tissue culture.
