It's showy lady's slipper time: State flower blooming bright in the northwoods - Bemidji Pioneer
This weekend is likely to be the best of the season to see Minnesota's state flower, the Showy Lady's Slipper, in full bloom. Since 1925 the state has regulated the collection and commercial sale of the species. The showy lady's slipper is one of 43 orchid species that are native to Minnesota and is easily recognizable as a brightly colored orchid that will have one or two blossoms on a single stem. White petals sit on top of a white pouch, or slipper, streaked with pink and hairy oval leaves clasp the stem. Fully grown, the plants reach a height of one to two feet and may show in red, white, or green in addition to the classic pink. If protected, this flower has a long life span - possibly as long as 100 years.

Childhood friends from Edina recycle flowers into bouquets of beauty for seniors - Minneapolis Star Tribune
Edina East High School in 1981. They lost touch after attending different colleges - Hogan at St. Olaf College and Wooldridge at the University of Minnesota - and became immersed in careers and families.
In a stroke of luck six years ago, both were hired by Gentle Transitions, which offers senior relocation services.There, they renewed their friendship.
Hogan read a story about an Idaho gardener who started her own nonprofit to deliver flowers to people in hospice. "It made so much sense and seemed easy to do," she said. Hogan's daughter told her to stop talking about it - and just do it.

St. Paul paper artist crafts incredibly realistic flowers that last
Minnesota. Now she creates custom arrangements for permanent home decor and special events - even wedding bouquets. Paper flowers serve as an everlasting memento of the occasion, she notes. "You can dry real flowers but they don't look the same. These look real, and you can keep them looking fresh."
Her toughest challenge so far? Creating a lady slipper, Minnesota's state flower, for her mother for Mother's Day. "The shape made it hard - it's such a smooth seamless cup shape," she says.
She charges not by the flower but by the hour - however many it takes to create whatever a client wishes. "You're buying my time," she says. That typically ranges from about $150 for a bouquet of simple poppies to $200 for a bouquet of more complex flowers.
And if you want to learn how to make your own paper flowers, she also hosts periodic workshops.
