    Unknown Woodland Plant

    Hey guys!

    So, I took a walk in the woods today and found this guy. At first, I thought it was some sort of Cypripedium, but the more I look at pictures, the more I think that it's not. So here's the info:

    In Rhode Island, in the woods, growing on a little island in a freshwater stream.





    There were many around, all close to the water, but this was the biggest and most developed. And yet? No flowers, which I would think would have already been out if it were a Cypridium. So what do you think?


    Thanks,
    CJ

    I forget what it's called but, I have several growing in my wildflower bed. It gets 3-4 feet tall and shoots up branched stalks of tiny white flowers. Flies are the main pollinators, it draws them in like crazy.

    Definitely not a Lady Slipper then, huh? If you ever remember what it's called, let us know.
