Specialty Paphiopedilum or "Lady Slipper" orchids have arrived at Exotic Plants in quantities. These gorgeous orchids look difficult but are one of the easiest orchids to grow indoors. They are often one of the longest blooming orchids and are available in a wide variety of colors. Come on in and take a look, if you decide to take one home ... as always ... all of our orchids come with a detailed care instruction sheet. Maybe your princess needs a "slipper" this holiday!

We have some beautiful snowy hydrangeas that just arrived! These gems make nice holiday gifts, are easy to care for over the winter, and enjoy transplanting in the spring. They can be enjoyed inside this winter, just keep moist, check weekly, make sure they have good winter light, and remove dead blooms. They really are an outside plant. So be sure to transplant in the spring, to a shady area, where the soil can be kept moist. Think about these snowy treats for a friend this holiday!
