Steve, nice pictures as always. Your Orchis simia is probably a hybrid with Orchis militaris: Orchis simia flowers from top down and the arms are too broad. But it is a very nice plant.

Serapias cordigera is my favorite Serapias.

Thanks Stefan.
I would agree that my “simia” seems to have some militaris features. I bought it from a grower in Germany. I also bought a “purpurea” from the same source; it is now in flower and is clearly militaris. I would like to track down some cultivated pure simia and purpurea -if you know of any sources please let me know.

Steve, thank you for the education (and superb photography!). Until now, I had no idea that yellow Dactylorhiza existed!

Hi Steve,
so nice to see a Dactylorhiza sambucina. Is it your plant and if so, how do you grow it?

Hi Maren,
The sambucina are pot grown in a mix of pumice/perlite/grit/cat litter/JI3 (equal proportions of each). The pots are plunged in sand in a covered but open-sided frame. The sand plunge has heating cable set to keep the plunge just frost-free. Previously I grew these Dacts along with Ophrys in the greenhouse but found that they coped poorly with the low winter light. When grown in a cold frame they come into growth in late March. The good light levels/long growing days of late Spring seem to be appreciated. Unlike native Dacts they don’t tolerate a wet growing medium.

Nice Dacts Tony!


Some orchids from earlier this month:
Thelymitra glaucophylla Royal Blue -It’s about 6 weeks behind the other Oz orchids.





Calanthe brevicornu



Amitostigma gonggashanicum



Amitostigma simplex



Hemipilia flabellata -The flowers are like wee angels whilst the single leaf is also quite attractive.

I loved seeing the dactylorhizas in the bulb log this week.  Like yours, my garden is full of self-sown seedlings in fascinating variety.  Those, and epipactis, certainly get around.

Not much to see in the garden now after the drought, basically only a few surviving Epipactis veratrifolia and Bletilla "Coritani" flowers.
