Mar. 8, 2001

Whereas the roots of lady’s slipper, Cypripedium spp. (notably C. acaule and C. parviflorum) have historically been traded as wild botanicals and, given the recognition of the threatened status of these and other orchids (resulting from extirpation for commercial purposes and other causes), Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA) members agree voluntarily to refrain from trade in wild-harvested lady’s slippers.
