Product Description

The Small White Lady’s-slipper is a nationally and provincially endangered plant found in remnant tall-grass prairies.  The pleasing aroma of this species attracts small solitary bees.  The bees enter the pouch of the flower but find no nectar to reward them.  Trapped inside the ‘slipper’, the bee can only exit via the back of the orchid.  As the bee passes through, pollen is deposited on its’ back where it will rub off onto the next plant it visits.
