Dactylorhiza - Temperate Terrestrial Orchids

Fall List 2020

Rhizomes from our Fall List will be shipped in October after the plants have gone dormant.


Ordering

You may order and pay in two ways, by Check using our order form or by Paypal, using your Credit Card or PayPal account, directly from the website.

It is important to keep in mind that the plants we sell as 'blooming size' have bloomed at least one year. This does not necessarily mean that the plant you receive will bloom next Spring, but more often than not it will. Some species and hybrids may abort their bud the first Spring after being transplanted. This is a response to being moved.

We ship our plants bare root in clear plastic bags. Having a clear plastic bag allows you to become comfortable or not with the quality of the plant when it arrives. If you do not like the look of a rhizome when you receive it we are happy to take it back as we want you to be happy with the plants you receive. This also means that if you order from us, it is with the understanding that we cannot be responsible for issues that become apparent after you plant your rhizome.

Plants

In addition to listed plants, we also sometimes have available limited numbers of unlisted plants - please contact us if you are looking for something we do not have. If we do not have it, we will help you find someone who does.

Due to the difficulty and costs of obtaining phytosanitary and CITES certificates, we can only ship within the United States.


Dactlyorhiza Orchids

Dactylorhiza are commonly grown in gardens in Europe where most species originate. A couple of species also occur in North America. We hope that these excellent plants become more commonly available in the U.S. and will offer species and hybrids as they become available to us. If you are not familiar with these orchids, and mmost of us in the U.S. are not, view Ian Young's video. Ian is a renowned gardener in Aberdeen, Scotland.
