    Cypripedium guttatum

    This Cypripedium guttatum is one little fellow that I make no apology for posting photos of every year.
    It may be small but it certainly has impact.

    Amazing ! I'll hopefully be adding this species to my Cypripedium list this year. What are you using for media ?

    This one I keep in peat / perlite just a general Sarracenia mix, it appears to like it wet.

    A couple of photos from last year.

    Magnificent! Don't believe I've ever seen this particular species before. How do you winter it?

    It's hardy, part of its natural range is Alaska.
