Cypripedium calceolus -lots of leafy growth but few flowers this year. I need to increase the potash feeds after flowering.



Cypripedium x ventricosum



Cypripedium speciosum -typical pink-flowered form.



Cypripedium speciosum -a near white form.



Cypripedium rebunense

Long term SRGC forum readers will remember Kristl Walek's great series on "My Bit of Heaven" http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=1699.0

Kristl writes:  In Nova Scotia I regularly ran across the white form of Cypripedium acaule in the wild. Here in Ontario, it is only rarely that I have seen them.
