some of my favorites, I miss seeing them blooming. Thanks for sharing.
Hey Meghan! Thanks for these. They are absolutely stunning and I really hope I can see them for myself one day! The botanical name for yellow ladies slippers in the States is now Cypripedium parviflorum as they've been recognised as distinct from the Eurasian C.calceolus. There are two forms: var. parviflorum and var. pubescens. I'm not sure which these would be. There's some good info. on these species here: http://miosjournal.org/journal/2010/07/C...
Forgot to change the date my bad
Is it normal for these to be in bloom now in Minnesota or were they taken inside?
