L is for Ladyslippers
Pink Ladyslippers on the other hand are much smaller. They are a deeper pink and are more likely to be found in forested areas with little undergrowth. You have to look for them as they often stand alone. The word Orchid comes from the Greek word for testicles......
And we also have Yellow Ladyslippers. They are much smaller than the Showy Ladyslippers but also grow in open areas and in clusters. Some of them have red markings on their leaves.
I am so looking forward to seeing these orchids in bloom again.
