Farges’ Cypripedium - Cypripedium fargesii 
Cypripedium fargesii (Asparagales - Orchidaceae) is a bizarrely attractive dwarf slipper orchid. This species is very rare, uncommon and with a very restricted distribution, confined  to south Gansu, west Sichuan, west Hubei and north Chongping, China.
This species is listed on the IUCN Red List as Critically Endangered, mainly due to habitat loss (it has a rather narrow range) and illegal collection for the orchid trade.
This particular plant is grown from laboratory-raised seed in Europe. It has very specific needs and is difficult to grow over the long term.
