A Lovely Ladyslipper

Last year was a rough one for my most prized Cypripedium, but more on that later. It was also the first year this plant, a hybrid called Gisela, bloomed in my garden. It's a cross between the native small yellow ladyslipper and a very red species from Asia. Apparently it's an earlier bloomer than my other, native species since they are most just a few inches tall at this point.
