A change from the tuberous ones is Cephalanthera longifolia which is rhizomatus and comes from coniferous forests. It is completely hardy

An elegant orchid, love the slight undulation of the leaves.

Tony, I have always dreamed of encounter a Cephalanthera in the wild but this is almost as good!
Clair, I think your D fuchsii have a lot of maculata in them. The lip is more like a maculata than a fuchsii.

I'm sure you're right about the maculata genes in my hybrids, Trond, though it's interesting to note that the pure D. maculata species blooms later than the hybrids in my garden.  D. fuchsii is just beginning its bloom.  I'll post pictures when things peak.

Time of blooming depends as much on provenance as on species.

More hybrid dactylorhizas, good markings and a two-toned flower, and a happy pollinator, whom I can blame for all the mixed-up genes!

One last post -- a hybrid dactylorhiza showing lots of D. majalis influence (This was the one with leopard spotted leaves in an earlier post.)

Claire, what is the source for all these wonderful dactylorhizas?  I know many you show are hybrids occurring in your garden, but is there a commercial source for some of them? How hardy are they?
