Provincial Flower

The Lady's Slipper is PEI's official provincial flower.

The Lady's Slipper (Cypripedium acaule) was made the official provincial flower on April 25, 1947. The orchid gets its name from the shape of its petals which look like a slipper. The Lady's Slipper blooms in late May and June and grows in shady woodlands. These delicate flowers should not be picked or moved because they rarely survive a change of habitat.
