Specializing in the genus Cypripedium



ABOUT US

OUR MISSION The Vermont Ladyslipper Company is a family run business founded in 1993. Our mission is to commercially produce laboratory propagated Cypripediums, from seed, to enhance and stabilize the dwindling numbers of this genus and to make available for sale these beautiful plants to the general public without affecting any naturally occurring populations.

Through our research, we now know that large scale commercial production is possible with several species within this genus. Each year, The Vermont Ladyslipper Company is making progress which indicates,that soon, we will be able to mass produce many more species. We plan to eventually be able to offer virtually every known species of Cypripedium along with the cultivation information required to successfully grow the plant. We believe there is no need for a disconnect between having a business and preserving our natural world.

All of our Cypripediums are exclusively 100% Laboratory Propagated From Seed and grown to maturity by
Vermont Ladyslipper Company and are NOT divisions of, nor salvaged wild collected plants.

For a more detailed description of the species we have in production and development
see the Species Research & Development.   area of this web site.

To recap, our purpose is to produce plants at a reasonable price and to provide the knowledge to successfully cultivate the plants. This will allow people to establish new colonies and protect naturally occurring populations by drastically reducing collecting pressure.
