Another beautiful picture that I just added to the web site (even though it has been available in our booth for two years now) is the Lady Slipper Orchid.
Paphiopedilum vanguard is a hybrid that was first produced in 1921 from two other members of the genus. All members of that genus come from southeast Asia. This specimen was produced by Terry Glancy, owner ofin Homestead, Florida.
There are twelve species of lady slippers native to the U.S, all in the genus Cypripedium.
