Notes:

I live in Cumming and found these flowers growing wild in my backyard. Can you identify and tell me if these are a native plant to this area?

    Cypripedium…
    Rare and endangered. You are very lucky to have a patch of these guys.
    I’d fence off the area, and make it a no-traffic zone…
    If you are lucky enough to get seeds, maybe try your hand at propagation.

    They say that these are impossible to transplant, due to any damaged roots dying back to the plant, and other various theories.

    Thank for your comments. I was curious because I have seen this plant before. I will heed your advice and try to propagate via seeds only.
