6 Pink Lady Slipper Orchids

cypripedium acaule

Orchid Family ( Orchidaceae )

Flowers pink with reddish veins and a lower lip like petal pouch.  Seeds
are found in the brown capsules , 4.5cm long and erect, during the fall

Sometimes called moccasin flower these lady slippers are the largest of
our native orchids and prefer a semi-shaded area, moderately acidic to
neutral moist soil.  Aboriginal peoples used the roots in a sedative,
and in an epilepsy medicine.    Pink Lady Slippers can live for 20 years
in some cases and return each year with their elegant beauty.

These Pink Lady Slipper Orchids are carefully removed from the ground
and some of the soil is gently washed off.

They are then placed in a plastic bag with moist towel placed around
the roots.
