Yellow Lady's-slippers

Cypripedium parviflorum


Yellow lady's-slippers are uncommon in Maine. As the name implies, this species is best identified by the yellow pouch-like flowers that bloom from late May through mid July. Unlike the pink lady's-slipper, the yellow lady's-slipper has leaves along the stem of the plant and the flower is sometimes fragrant. In Maine, yellow lady's-slippers are found in mesic (moderately moist) nutrient rich forests as well as in bogs and swamps.

Beautiful shot of a very nice orchid! Captures the atmosphere of the place even though it's close up. Would love to see a wider view of the habitat too.
