Several years ago I went to Michigan and helped a friend remove 100s of Cypripedium acaule (with permits) . They were in the way of an apartment complex and roads (gag) .
The area was beautiful , ferns 6 foot tall , huge pine trees , Bogs with Jack in the Pulpits , Native Iris . A flowing river branch , all kinds of wildflowers . What a waste . The sad part is it was out in the country not in a populated area, Would of hugged it if I could of .Gin
