Lady’s Slipper Orchids

I’m not really finished my ‘Time Off Break’ – I just forgot that this post was scheduled. The timing is good though. These orchids, which grow in a rural ditch, were ready to bloom in the next few days – but the county mower came through yesterday and chopped off their heads.

I know it is probably not the best time of year to transplant them, but I picked out two small clumps and dug them out of the ditch. Hopefully they will survive in my yard! If yes, I’ll post pictures!

  1. Fun plants, Margy. I hope you can grow them! Peggy has been replanting irises and they are coming up everywhere. She even threw some away thinking that they were dead. Guess what? 🙂 –Curt
