I am pleased to share this photo of one of our threatened
species of Ladyslipper. This C. candidum is growing in my formal
garden in Northern Ohio, USA next to Anemones in full sun. In the
wild here, it grows in a 4 inch layer of pure crumbly humus (pH
7-8) over a layer of gravel. It does not need a bog or swamp. It
grows in grassy areas where the grasses gradually overgrow the
plants and shade provide them with bright shade. I am growing it
in pure humus over a layer of gravel. The large Anemone leaves
next to it will gradually grow larger and provide it with some
light shade. It is a very small flower about the size of C.
henryi. The plant itself grows about 8-10 inches tall.
