I'm starting this thread for terrestrial orchids, such as Cypripedium. I'll start out with a common "cyp" familiar to many of you, Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens. I know I went overboard shooting photos, but I just had to show some images, the plants have outdone themselves this year. Three unseasonably hot days pushed these along faster than I could have imagined, when they were just barely hinting as showing buds mere days ago. The bigger of my two large clumps has 32 pips this year.
