The Cypripedium Orchids
The new Cypripedium shoots usually appear during April; except for Cypripedium formosanum, more precocious, which often emerge at the beginning of March which emerge later. Once started, the vegetation grows very quickly; in 3 to 5 weeks, the foliage has opened out.
The flowering extends from the end of April to the beginning of June. At the end of the summer, the foliage yellows then fades before disappearing completely. Cypripedium then go into their winter dormancy. When the leaves have completely faded, the stems can be cut, preserving a height of 5cm. Take care not to damage any possible new shoots that are already present.
The Cypripediums are certainly the most spectacular terrestrial garden orchids. This genus is composed of more than 40 species distributed throughout the world and has a great variety of sizes and colours. These hardy orchids are characterised by majestic flowers that “resemble” a clog.
Except for some very vigorous species (Cyp. reginae, kentuckiense, flavum, pubescens) or many hybrids (Cyp. Ulla Silkens,…), very easy to grow, which quickly form spectacular clusters in the garden, the other species are rather more for the cognoscenti.
