‘Raising Rarities’ is most interested in offering the hardy orchid enthusiast the Cypripedium species, known commonly as hardy ‘Lady’s-Slipper Orchids’. We are also interested in all native hardy orchids and understanding how they grow and propagate. We want all entering this site to know how to grow them.
Any plant is rare for two main reasons, a slow growth rate and special growth requirements.
Other reasons include plant collection and unmanaged land development with respect to the
diversity of its ecology, both of which we are opposed to.
For these reasons we are pleased to offer plants that are grown from seed in-vitro, or artificially in sterilized flasks and formula. We also offer plants that are rescued from the wild with permission from state authorities on land that is destined for roadwork or development.
We hope that you enjoy the beauty of the Cypripediums we offer on this site.
In the following pages we hope that you can further enjoy our beautiful gardens where we display these and other rare beauties of nature and the orchid species.
We now accept major credit cards and electronic checking through PayPal.com or credit cards can also be phoned in.
