Weekly Bloom • Slipper Orchid
Father's Day is this Sunday, so our special this week is especially for Dads! Lady Slipper Orchids (Paphiopedilums) are a easy care orchid with a distinctive flower. They are among the most cultivated and crossbred orchids, with many hybrids suited well to life as houseplants. Their name is a combination of Paphos, the city in Cyprus where Aphrodite is said to have emerged from the sea, and "pedilon," the Ancient Greek term for slipper. Check out our special price on Paphs for Dads.
