More info

This mainly European genus contains species of very varied shapes and colours. From their rosette of leaves emanates a dense spike of spectacular, delicately cut flowers.

In contrast to other terrestrial orchids, Orchids have a summer dormancy; no vegetation is visible during the summer.

This type of plant is more suited to a connoisseur audience.

 

Planting

Orchids thrive in calcareous or neutral soils, low in organic matter and well drained. Orchids generally grow in drier places than Dactylorhiza, more often in open areas such as meadows, slopes, roadsides, mountainsides, ...

In cultivation, it is advisable to use lava stone (pumice) or fine quartz to keep the soil light and well drained. We recommend adding a small amount of compost low in organic matter or clay (maximum 5%).

 

Exposure

The ideal location will be sunny or semi-shaded.

 

Growth Phase…

Unlike most other terrestrial orchids, Orchids are characterized by a summer dormancy; new leaves appear in late autumn or winter and persist until the flowers bloom in spring and disappear as soon as flowering is over. No vegetation is usually visible during the summer.
