The woodland habitat of 
Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens
often called Cypripedium pubescens


Cyp. pubescens often grows protected by poison ivy


In northeast Georgia where these photos were taken, 
Cyp. pubescens
blooms in early May


Unlike Cyp. acaule, Cyp. pubescens is less common
and not found in colonies 


Many think the yellow mocassin flower is one of 
North America's most beautiful orchid species


Calopogon tuberosus also blooms in the late spring and summer


Calopogon tuberosus is a plant of open meadows and bogs and can often be found 
growing along side of Saracenia species (Pitcher Plants)


 

Another orchid that can be found flowering in meadows at this time of year is Pogonia ophioglossoides
