Besides Roses.........
January 10, 2007
We have more than just roses at Peterkort Roses. Right now the winter orchids are blooming. Especially prominent are the paphiopedilums or ladyslipper orchids.

Some of our plants are over 50 years old! Dad inherited them from his Aunt Gertrude.

"Paphs" don't like to be tissue cultured or divided, so you don't see billions of plants like you do with phaelanopsis orchids.

Cymbidium orchids are beginning their long season which lasts from Thanksgiving to Mother's Day. Right now we have green ones in several shades, a red called "Yowie Flame Heather," cream, and pink.

All these things are grown by us in our Hillsboro greenhouse. When you buy them you get the benefit of their lifespan, rather than the inside of the shipping box from Holland or New Zealand!

We use the same hydroponic growing technique we use for the roses, which gives our lilies very long stems.

We hope you try some of these "other than roses" products. To see a list of them, at the home page of the web site click on "What We Grow" and then "Other Products."
