Calypso bulbosa - USE CODE "CNFL03"
bulbosa is the one orchid in Arizona that is the classic "Lady
Slipper" shape. like most orchids, this species is fairly rare.
My friend Pat Hartshorne found the first of the dozen or so we found
during our camping trip over Labor Day weekend in 2001 in the White
Mountains near Greer, Arizona. While many people see a shoe, I tend
to see an animal's mouth with a crown.
