Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens: Yellow Lady's-slipper...Fern Valley has ochids too

The easiest of the terrestrial Slipper-orchids to grow; 25 years ago I was thrilled to discover that the park four blocks away from our new house had a small colony of these orchids. They're still there in sandy loam growing beneath Mountain Laurel, Kalmia latifolia, 25 feet from a swing set.
