Clustered lady's slipper (Cypripedium fasciculatum)

Clustered lady's slipper (Cypripedium fasciculatum) is a rare and endangered dwarf orchid species endemic to the coniferous forests of western North America. It is known to have a mycorrhizal relationship with several species of subterranean fungi, often on steep slopes near streams. Despite this perennial herb's broad range spanning eight states, its distribution is disjunct, and specimens are notoriously difficult to find. Additional common names include brownie lady's slipper or brownies.
