Events Description


Join Shawn Hillis on growing Lady Slipper Orchids in Western Canadian gardens.

The distinctive flowers of Cypripedium and other Lady Slipper Orchids are marked by the inflated slipper or shoe-shaped lip. The name Cypripedium is derived from Kypris, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, the Latin word pedis meaning “foot” the Greek word pedilon meaning “slipper”. There are about 58 species worldwide; 13 in North America.

Shawn Hollis is an award winning horticulturalist, author and lecturer. Shawn’s nursery Gardens Slippers is the most awarded temperate orchid nursery in North America.
