matt_in_trees Today may very well have been the greatest day of botanizing I have ever had. One of the many highlights was finally meeting Pinguicula vulgaris - North America's most northerly butterwort. #hiking #canada #butterwort #pinguicula #carnivorousplants #californiacarnivores #nature #natureporn #nativeplants #nature_obsession #brucepeninsula 5d

  •   hand_over_heart We are trying to grow paw paws at Oz! 2w
  •   jenghig I've never seen the flowers before! They're so pretty 2w
  •   rebeckieminx WOW! 2w
  •   walkinginwool Beautiful color. I hadn't realize they were so bright. Did you see male and female flowers? 5d
  •   matt_in_trees @walkinginwool Me either. It was my first time seeing them in person. The flowers are monoicous, but they don't self well so multiple unrelated individuals are needed. 5d
  •   scajaquada what part of buffalo did you find this in? ive never seen pawpaw in the wild 22h
  •   jeffreywaggoner Many people have been planting them in the Ozarks and there are finally enough of them that they're beginning to produce fruit!! 😎 It's amazing to see. 13h

matt_in_trees Cypripedium parviflorum var. parviflorum

Still can't get over the display these miniature lady's slipper orchids put on. It is good to know that places like this still exist in New York. Let's hope for ample pollination.

  •   orchid_beard In 1995. DNA data confirmed they were separate species. Calceolus is more genetically related to henryi and segawai. Last year, Phillip Cribb put out a new volume through Kew Press called The Genus Cypripedium. It's an excellent current resource. 3w
  •   orchid_beard BTW, I hope you smelled it. It smells like fruit loops. 3w
  •   matt_in_trees @orchid_beard wow, cool! Thanks for the info. I will have to get my hands on that volume. And, yes I was happy the land steward who pointed them out to me told me to take a whiff. 3w
  •   walkinginwool Gorgeous! 3w
  •   elementgrrl Seriously, you saw that in the forest?!?!?! 3w
  •   bydonnielle I would just die if I saw that in the forest. Wow! 3w
  •   llithops JEALOUS 3w
  •   thomas.needham What a beauty!!@matt_in_trees 3w
