Yellow Lady Slipper Plant

Zone North Battleford Saskatchewan Canada | Anonymous added on September 12, 2018 | Answered

I have a yellow lady slipper and it grew well and flowered this spring and then mid summer it dried up. NOW it is sending new shoots. What should I do to ensure it survives the winter. Thanks Hank
