Lady’s Slipper Orchid
A week ago I blipped the only Lady’s Slipper Orchid which grows wild in this country.
Now I can show the first Slipper Orchid which grows in our garden. These are American hybrids and are stronger and more vigorous than our native species. They do very well on a north facing slope in fairly shallow limestone soil.
This particular one is Cyprepedium gisela.
In the next month I hope to blip some of the others.
