white lady-slipper, Cypripedium candidum

White lady-slippers are rare across their range. It's tough when you only live in threatened wetlands. It's additionally difficult if you don't produce a lot of seeds, because of low pollination. White lady-slippers grow in fens in AL, IA, IL(T), IN(R), KY(E), MD(E), MI(T), MN, MO, ND, NE, NJ(E), NY(E), OH(E), PA(X), SD, VA, WI(T), MB, ON(E), and SK(X).
