The Orchid Mall-Everything in Orchids!

Orchids Native to Iowa!

Yes, there are 32 species of orchids native to the Hawkeye State.  This link from the Central Iowa Orchids Society tells you all about them!

One of those Iowa native orchids is the Showy Lady Slipper (Cypripedium reginae) which is a fun garden plant to try in your Iowa garden (its also the state flower of Minnesota!)
