For a limited time, Sargent’s Nursery is able to give you the chance to grow the Minnesota State Flower. We are offering native Showy Lady’s Slipper and Small Yellow Lady’s Slipper from a state certified harvester/grower. Supplies are limited so stop out soon.
These beautiful plants prefer bright shade or dappled sunlight under taller trees. Soil should be consistently moist but not soggy and not too dry with lots of organic matter. Add organic matter to soil when planting. Decomposed leaves are ideal but compost would work as well. Plants are shallow rooted so mulching is important to maintain moisture. Care sheets available with purchase.
For more information on the Lady’s Slipper, visit the DNR online.
