Other sections cover the history, morphology, ecology and conservation of Cypripedium. This book is ideal for those keen to grow slipper orchids in the garden, and will encourage growers to buy artificially propagated hybrids over wild-collected species. The authors' extensive field and hands-on experience in growing and hybridizing Cypripedium is second to none.
