Description

(Cypripedium calceolus var. pubescens)

This native orchid is a joy to see in its native habitat. The large yellow flowers with a conspicuous pouch depend on deception for pollination as it offer no food reward to potential pollinators. This plant is becoming increasingly less common as thoughtless individuals collect it from the wild.
