About Us

About Us:

We are a tissue culture laboratory, licensed by the State of Michigan, for the propagation and sale of native terrestrial orchids and perennial plants.  

Our laboratory started off as an effort to propagate Lady Slipper orchids (Cypripediums) .  Although we started off primarily focused on the native Lady Slipper orchids, our interests and efforts have expanded and we are now propagating stock covering many species.

A special thanks to those folks who have patiently helped this endeavor.  They have become good friends.

Here is a list of some of the plants that we propagate.

                              1.   Native prairie plants

                              2.   Bogs – bog orchids-                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

                              3.   Native fringed orchids – Platanthera series

                              4.   Lady Slippers -Cypripediums

                              5.   Alpine rhododendrons and azaleas

                              6.   Perennials and flowering shrubs

                              7    Woodland plants and select perennials

                              8.   Bletilla

                              9.   Dactylorhiza

We have launched the “One Test Tube at a Time” Program in 2011.  This program is an opportunity for our Laboratory to do a small part in helping to re-establish “special needs” orchids on various public sites.   Take a look at the drop down Tab on our main page to read more about this initiative. 

This season, spring 2012 is the launch of our website as we offer a few of the plants that are at our nursery.  It’s an eclectic grouping of plants that we find interesting.  We will be adding additional species as our inventory stock continues to develop and mature.  

Our efforts will continue, as we develop the voice and image of our unique company to supply you, our most valued customer, with unique and sought after plants for your gardens. 

Thanks for visiting our web site.
