At The Gardens at Post Hill we propagate and display temperate terrestrial orchids, related woodland plants, and other horticulturally distinctive plants. We are constantly expanding the information on the website and hope that you will visit often.
Please visit our GPH Store by clicking the links at left. You may purchase plants (in season) and Gift Certificates.
Our Spring 2014 Cypripedium list is now open. You can browse the plants by clicking on the Store-Cypripedium link in the bar
on the left side of this page, or by clicking here
We look forward to our Spring list which will be posted in January.
We have Pleione available for the first time. They are from Holland via Germany. Pleione is popular in Europe and Japan but has not ever had a strong following in the U.S. We have a limited number of several species and hybrids to determine whether there is interest. If so, we will expand our offering for the 2015 season. Since Pleione tend to break dormancy earlier than Cypripedium, we will ship them earlier, around the end of February. If you are interested order early as we do have limited quantities this season (basically I am selling a few of those I ordered for myself!) Click the Store-Pleione link at the left or click here.
We will alert you when specific plants become sold out for Spring. As of February 13, we have sold out of Cyp macranthos and Cyp pubescens blooming size plants and all seedlings. We have also sold out of Pleione limprichtii. Those who have ordered these already will receive their plants.
Images of some First Bloomers for us during Spring 2013:

Cypripedium calceolus x segawai. Some plants have solid yellow pouches, others are speckled with red.
Cypripedium Mem Shawna Austin. Flowers from two plants. These are tall plants with large, showy flowers.
