Is it a bad thing to have too many favorites? The wildflower Pipsissewa might just be my very favorite.

This beautiful bloom droops down for a while, then as the plant matures the flower raises it head. The Pipsissewa is an evergreen plant, the leaves are hard and leathery. In the dead of winter you can dig down through the snow and find green leaves and dried flower heads. The plant is hardy to zone 3 and can withstand temperatures of -40.
