These photos are of an unusual disjunct population of Cypripedium candidum in Maryland, USA. While most populations of Cyp. candidum occur in calcareous prairies, this population occurs on the highly eroded slopes of a west-facing limestone hill. The site is extremely treacherous and difficult to navigate (see habitat photo).
