Lady's Slipper Orchid/Fruesko/Cypredium calceolus

The orchid with the delicate pink flowers is one of our most rare orchids. The name is Red Helleborine/Rød skovlilje - and it grows in the same habitat in Rold Skov as the big orchid Lady's slipper Orchid/Fruesko. Lady's Slipper grows in a big enclosure in the forest, and at this time of the year it has ceased to flower.
