Blooming Tuesday {Cypripedium}

{Lady Slipper Orchid}

Cypripedium species are members of the orchid family. Referred to as Lady’s slippers, these interesting plants have only two leaves branching out from its center. The flower itself resembles a slipper or moccasin, which is what spawned its name. These dainty blooms ranging white, yellow, and deep pink to nearly purple remain tightly closed with exception to the small opening in the front.

Lady slippers may not be for every bride. They lend to a more natural and organic feel but can also be for the high end chic affair as well.
