The Gardens at Post Hill

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.

March 12: Our Spring 2016 Cypripedium list is now closed, joining the Pleione list which closed in February. The early warm weather has caused the Cyps to begin to break dormancy. We thank everyone who ordered from us this Spring! Our Fall list will be uploaded in June with shipment in October.


We have added Calanthe, Dactylorhiza, and will be adding Bletilla to our terrestrial orchids at our new Seattle, Washington area site. We will be adding images of progress of the beds during the year and look forward to adding these genera to our sales list as we produce adequate numbers of plants.

Some blooms in 2015:


Cypripedium acaule. These grow in most of the woods around here in Northern Connecticut.

Cypripedium Renate Pastel. Several of our plants have flowers with a delicate pink coloration rather than pure white.
