    Amazing. I've been impressed by a Cyp. acaule growing unmolested along a road at a girl scout camp in MA. Hundreds of adults (the real threat) and kids leave it alone while walking by it and several little ones nearby suggest it's been reproducing. But the first poacher who notices that Cyp. reginae is going to see the 4-5 ft clump as many hundreds of $. It must be a perfect location, other than for it being visible.

    Here are some photos of the very clump in mid-late spring. This is only 1 half of the clump keep in mind, there were many other plants off to the left, I just took a pic of the middle of the clump.










    And a pic of one of the locals...I have yet to find C. reginae in my area.....I have leads however from the "old timers" in my town. One of my teachers claims to have seen them in her field near the woods and offered to bring me there in the spring to make an ID attempt if we can even find them.

    Those are awsome pics! That's a native orchid, no? Sorry, not to up on my orchids (learning, though!). What's the common name, I'm just curious.

    Yes indeed Dave, all those pics are the natives. We alss have more ladyslippers I haven't found yet So locals are:

    C. reginae (pictured) -AKA The Showy Ladyslipper
    C. acaule (last picture) -AKA The Moccasin flower or stemless ladyslipper.
    C. parviflorum var. pubescens- AKA Large yellow Ladyslipper
    C. parviflorum var. parviflorum- AKA Small yellow Ladyslipper
    C. arietinum- AKA Ram's head ladyslipper
    C. andrewsii- natural hybrid between the small yellow slipper and the white ladyslipper.
    C. candidium- the white ladyslipper

    We also have many other orchids most notibly

    Arethusa bulbosa- dragon's mouth
    Calypso bulbosa- the Fairy slipper

    I have only found the C. acaule and C. reginae so far I have leads on the large yellow ladyslipper so this spring I will confirm it.

    Hey Nep G, Do you know what the latin name is for jack-in-the-pulpit? They're native to my neck of the woods, so they're a possibility for an outdoor garden (with plenty of shade, as they live on the forrest floor).

    Yupper, Arisaema triphyllum I love pulpits, got my own bed outside with a bunch of them in it. Trilliums too. Yep, be sure they get dappled sunlight, deep shade isn't neccesary because they will be etiolated if they are in too little light. But don't put them out on your lawn! lol under a tree is fine. Preferably a pine and broad leafed tree. Fertilze with crushed leaves every end of the season.
