We saw Pink Lady Slippers at several places in Newfoundland. The only places we have seen it in Michiana are Pinhook Bog, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and Fernwood Botanical Garden and Nature Preserve.
We were pleased to find the rare "Flat-petaled Yellow Lady's Slipper", Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens, in bloom at Burnt Cape Ecological Preserve at the northern tip of Newfoundland. Burnt Cape is an appropriate name - the terrain is rocky, dry and windswept. Nonetheless, many rare plant species grow there.
