Description Fine Print
 
Dactylorhiza purpurella, the northern marsh orchid, grows in northern Europe. It produces beautiful, short spike densely packed with gorgeous magenta flowers marked with darker magenta-red around white throats. Seed grown. Our plants are based on D. purpurella but with hybridization from other species. Plants will likely resemble the photo but could also show some interesting variation. 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.
