Unique Plants for the Discriminating Gardener

Special Vegetation offers a range of lady slipper orchids, plus a number of carnivorous plants and other hard-to-find species.

We're working hard to expand our inventory. We have a lot of plants in the production pipeline. If a species is noted as "out of stock," please sign-up for our mailing list (below) and check back often.

Note: our online store is open year-round. Most plans are shipped in the spring (March - May) and fall (September - November). Several, including those growing from bulbs and corms, can be shipped year-round. Orders are logged on a first-come-first-served basis. Inventory is limited for some items, so shop now for the best selection.

We welcome comments and inquiries, so drop us an email. We'll respond in short order!
