Commonly known as white lady's slipper, Cypripedium candidum is a species of mesic calcareous prairies and fens, preferring a soil pH of 7.2 to 7.8. In the US Midwest, bloom time ranges from early May to mid-June. Most remaining populations (with a few notable exceptions) are very small, and it is a rare sight to visit a rich prairie in May and marvel at the sight of hundreds of these tiny orchids with their dazzling white pouches like little elven shoes dancing in the sunlight. The plants range in size from 10cm to 42cm in height. The greenish-yellow, tan-striped sepals range from 15mm to 46mm in length, with a white lip, from 17mm to 35mm in length, occasionally veined in purple and/or spotted on the interior rim with purple.
