Pink Lady’s Slippers

We found a beautiful wild flower on the common property of Orchestra Camp Colony this week, pink lady’s slippers.  They may have bloomed every year, but this is the first we’ve seen them.  They are a member of the orchard family.

We saw three of them in full bloom.  These are a beautiful addition to our north Michigan woods.

  1. Cool they are there this year. We see trilliums in northern Michigan each year in abundance and we chuckle they are endangered elsewhere. Not chuckling they are endangered but happy we live in Michigan. Lady slippers are exotic and are like high school prom flowers. I wish I’d figured that out 3 prom nosegays ago instead of the orchids that put me back $8 each.

  2. They are beautiful! For 4-5 years we have had two or three blooming on our OC property. They just suddenly appeared one year, but you really have to look closely to find them. Maybe they have been there for many years!
