Epipactis tolerate many conditions. We recommend a light and well-aired soil. You can air your soil by means of some compost for hardy perennials. For an optimal result, 20% of lava stone (vulca, pumice, pouzzolane…) could be added in order to maintain good moisture in summer and to ensure good drainage in winter. The majority of the species (Epipactis palustris) are particularly fond of wet areas and can be cultivated at the banks of ponds or bodies of water.
Epipactis can be planted in full sunlight on condition that the substrate is prevented from becoming dry in summer. A more shaded exposure is also possible.
During the winter, the plant persists in rhizome form and devel- ops new shoots in the spring. Epipactis are very cold-resistant and do not require any special protection in winter.
The new Epipactis shoots are visible at the beginning of spring while the flowering extends from the end of spring until the first half of summer (June, July). Approximately two months after the flowering, the foliage fades then disappears completely with the arrival of winter.
Highly proliferative, these orchids will quickly form colonies of several hundred head following the successive growth and dormancy cycles
