Fairy Slipper Orchid (Calypso bulbosa)

Orchidaceae ~ Orchid Family

Fairy slipper orchid is so named because its flowers are much more delicate than those of the lady slipper orchids (Cypripedium sp.): about half their size, suitable for fairies! Do not pick these or any native orchids, as, for the most part, orchid reproduction is difficult in the wild.

This is from an older watercolor with pen and ink image done by Vorobik in 1994.
