An Orchid

One of our wild Orchids, "Pink Ladies Slipper" or "Moccasin Flower" (Cypripedium acaule meaning "Slipper of Venus"). These are huge to what I usually work with being 10-12" tall. They generally grow in piney woods (acid, sandy soil) and need a specific fungi in the soil to survive so trying to transplant them usually doesn't work.
