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
