Werner Bollmann - Lady's Slipper Orchid

Lady's slipper orchids usually grow in forests on calcareous soil in middle Europe. To find them far north in the taiga is always a little bit strange - like a paradise bird in Siberia. In these northern regions it can take over ten years until the tiny seed becomes a flowering plant.

Location: Finland
