Calypso bulbosa var. occidentalis fma. nivea
This photo was taken last year in Washington Park. It shows a very rare white form of the Western Fairy Slipper, the only flower of this form I have ever seen. Sadly, when I went back to see it this spring someone had dug it up. The hole was still there. I can't understand that anyone can be so selfish and so stupid as to remove such a treasure from its place, but that's the way some people are.
