This little gem shows up in shady groves in the Dungeness Recreation Area this time of year. It’s tiny – the blossom is no more than an inch high – but packs plenty of punch for its size. This is the most beautiful belly flower I’ve found. I had been calling it a ladyslipper or stream orchid, but it doesn’t match the real thing in my Encyclopedia of Northwest Native Plants.
Can anyone give this an accurate name?
