Terrestrial Orchids 2019
« on: January 12, 2019, 07:36:12 PM »
Did not see any local orchids while visiting Portugal only Cymbidiums and we were a bit early/ or the cold weather made the flowers late and a bit damaged

white and pink seems to be very common
Burgondy we also have a few
A yellow is a the stronger flowerer
a mustard flowered one is growing more in the open
A butter colored one
Potting in Lund in Southern Sweden and Coimbra in the middle of Portugal as well as a hill side in central Hungary

Ophrys tenthredinifera -a different form (or species?) from my earlier-flowering plant.



Orchis anatolica



Ophrys sicula (-I think this is sicula rather than phryganae but would welcome advice).



Diuris orientis -one of the “Donkey orchids”.

I wonder if that's how most of orchids evolved toward an epiphytic mode....

Nice pictures. Early purples grow on rock ledges in Scotland in company with alpine plants.
