Description Fine Print
 
Dactylorhiza majalis ssp. calcifugiens is a rare white subspecies found only in northern Denmark. It's luminous white flowers are sometimes flushed with a touch of yellow at the centres. Spikes can reach 35 cm (14 in.) high. Marsh orchids grow across Europe usually in moist habitats that are either moist year round or seasonally moist in the winter becoming drier in the summer. Despite their marshy natural habitats, these hardy orchids do well in evenly moist garden soils in full to part sun and are easy to grow. Over time they will develop into impressive clumps of lance-shaped leaves with many vertical spikes of delightful orchid flowers.
