On a previous post I shared some fabulous facts about fairy fauna. There were birds and fish with fairy names. We all know how much fairies love flowers. Today I'm going to show some examples of fairy-named flowers.
The Western Fairyslipper Orchid can be found in the Pacific Northwest. I've never seen one in its natural habitat and didn't even know they existed until now. Ron's website is both beautiful and informative. The picture links are below this image.
I looked on Wikimedia and found some more.
