  • Marsh Orchid – Dactylorhiza praetermissa subsp. Praetermissa

    Marsh Orchid - Dactylorhiza praetermissa subsp. Praetermissa

    This plant is an immigrant, presumably from Great Britain. It has become naturalized in a few seepage slopes and bogs in eastern Canada. This example was in a large colony in St. John’s, Newfoundland in July.

  • Clustered Lady’s Slipper – Cypripedium fasciculatum

    Clustered Lady’s Slipper - Cypripedium fasciculatum

    The only North American Lady’s Slipper to have a cluster of drooping flowers atop its stem. Once pollinated the flowers assume a more upright posture as seen here. Endemic to western North America, this specimen was photographed in a moist coniferous forest in southern Oregon.
