Welcome to Special Vegetation.

We're a specialty nursery focused on growing and sharing hardy orchids and other select companion plants.

Our online store is open for the fall 2021 shipping season! Orders placed through the web store will ship in October, once the plants enter dormancy.

We're featuring several orchid species including the large yellow lady's-slipper, which is available in several sizes. Many of the orchids we sold this spring have already flowered. These are large, healthy plants that will perform well in either a naturalized or garden setting. And don't miss our selection of companion plants. We offer a choice collection of woodland wildflowers, pollinator favorites, and carnivores that are not commonly available.

We're working hard to establish a large inventory. Orchids noted as "out of stock" will be listed in the future. Stock notices for other plants will be updated as we uncover our winter beds in the coming weeks, so please check back from time to time.

Questions? Drop us an email and we'll respond.

What's in the Store

Hardy Orchids

Our focus is cold-hardy orchid species, primarily those native to Eastern North America. Our plants are grown from seed and are NEVER collected from the wild. Interested in learning more about why we choose this painstaking process? Read more.

Companion Plants

Carnivorous Plants

Keep an eye out for a collection of carnivores, including fly traps, hardy pitchers, and sundews because who can resist a nice, flesh-eating plant, right?
