Comments:
Pink Lady's Slipper (Cypripedium acaule) is an interesting wildflower in the Orchid Family. This plant has only two leaves. They are green and branch out from the center of the plant. A single flower stalk also grows from the center. The deep pink flower, which many people say looks like a slipper, grows about three inches long. Unlike most flowers you see, this flower is closed tightly except for a small opening in the front.
