Tristan, with reference to the Orchis italica, the leaves don't look right, do they have any crinkling along the edges of them as in the photo in this link http://www.fascinationoforchids.com/species/Blog/Apr%2019/Scott%20McGregor/Orchis-italica%20spotted%20vs%20plain%20leaf%20forms.jpg

Hi Neil, now you mention it, they don't! I only got this one in the autumn. What do you think it might be  - a hybrid perhaps?
The leaves were spotted although these have faded quite a bit now.

Tristan, are you able to take a better photo of the flower head leaves, as that one is not very shape to see the detail.  Iím not sure what it is at present.

I would say it is italica, however, I have asked others for their opinion.

The opinion is, it is italica, there are examples that do not have crinkly leaves in Greece.

Rob Burch at Gardens at Post hill rases Cypripedium and Dactylorhiza from seeds as well as a few others.
I do not know if he also has/ have had Orphys as well.
He is a nice man to converse to so it might be worth asking for it.
Maybe it could be possible to use seeds from garden plants in US or Canada to raise plants. It takes some time to get flowering size.
Best of luck

Two self-pollinating species flowering in the greenhouse today, Neolindleya (Gymnadenia) camtschatica and Ophrys apifera. The ophryses are three years old seedlings.
