  1. DACTYLORHIZA FOLIOSA

    This beautiful spectacular Madeiran Orchid is a must for any flower border as its striking flower spikes double up every year. It will grow in any soil, and in fact does best in impoverished or un-manured conditions and prefers full sun, flowering in June with truly exceptionally large blooms. ... Learn More

  2. DACTYLORHIZA FUCHSII

    From neat rosettes of attractive purple-spotted, lance-shaped leaves, arise in late spring and early summer, long, densely-packed spikes, at first conical then cylindrical, of shell-pink flowers, each of which is intricately spotted and dotted with candy pink and purple. This is a very easy plant to grow in the garden, in a moist sunny soil, probably the best, and indeed the tallest, dactylorhiza to start with, and one which will, in time, make a splendid garden display which multiplies up very quickly. Seed MUST be sown by simply sprinkling it onto undisturbed garden soil. In a year or so, tiny spotted-leafed plants will appear as though by magic. Sowing in a pot of compost will not work! ...

  3. DACTYLORHIZA INCARNATA

    Stems, sometimes purple near the top, hold numerous pink flowers which are patterned with darker pink–purple. The alternate, stalkless leaves, which gradually become smaller towards the crown, are lanceolate with an entire margin and are attractively covered in dark purple spots. As implied by the common name, they will thrive in damp, even wet places where they can double up reliably each year. ... Learn More

  4. DACTYLORHIZA MACULATA

    This hardy orchid has exquisite spikes of bright purple and pink flowers above brown-spotted, lance-shaped leaves. A spectacular British native, now sadly very rare, the tubers double up annually when established. We also assist their spread by shaking dried seed heads around the garden. ... Learn More

  5. DACTYLORHIZA MAJALIS

    Pyramidal spires of delicately-spotted, dark purple flowers slowly open, the lowest blossoms usually open even before the stem has reached its full height, on strong stems above broad, spreading, purple-blotched leaves. Once they are established to flowering size, these plants double in size every year. In other words, if you carefully divide them, you should have at least 1,000 plants after 10 years. The Broad-leaved Marsh-orchid can be found from southern Sweden as far south as Northern Spain and the Dolomites in Italy and is completely hardy. ... Learn More

  6. DACTYLORHIZA PURPLE GIANT

    This is the most magnificent hardy hybrid orchid we have ever discovered as a seedling here. Bearing very tall spikes of deeply coloured flowers it is robust, vigorous and extremely garden-worthy. Quite incredibly, it has the enormous stature and vigour of "Orchid Maderense" (as it used to be called), but also the beautiful spotted foliage of one of the less vigorous species. Seedlings may vary but you will eventually end up with a wide variety of forms and colours. These plants are very slow to germinate and flower but are worth any wait. When in flower, the two metre square patch of these treasures in our cottage garden here in Devon is constantly admired. ... Learn More

  7. DACTYLORHIZA PURPURELLA

    This beautiful flower is widespread in the British Isles where it is found at up to 600 m above sea level. It is the more northerly equivalent of D. praetermissa with a delightful stocky dwarf habit with deep blue-tinged, green leaves and compact crowded flower spikes of deep rich violet-purple flowers. The individual blooms are deeply coloured and have a characteristic diamond shaped lip. It grows well and bulks up, doubling annually in ordinary garden soil, which is ideally damp but well drained. ... Learn More
