Artist's Description

Here’s one of the Lady Slippers (Moccasin flower) up close. Notice how it resembles one of those cool fuzzy slippers! Blooming in the late Spring and into July, these have a variety of shades from violet to white.

Details From Wikipedia:
“Lady’s slipper orchids, lady slipper orchids or slipper orchids are the orchids in the subfamily Cypripedioidea, which includes the genera Cypripedium, Mexipedium, Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium and Selenipedium. They are characterised by the slipper-shaped pouches (modified labellums) of the flowers – the pouch traps insects so they are forced to climb up past the staminode, behind which they collect or deposit pollinia, thus fertilising the flower.”
