Dactylorhiza x foliosa
This is not the species but a long established garden hybrid of the madeiran or leafy orchid which we have propagated by division of garden stock over the last 30 years, and therefore reliably hardy An erect herbaceous perennial to 60cm tall, with spirally arranged, lance-shaped leaves and stunning purple flowers 2.5cm wide, in a dense spike to 12cm long. Likes a humus rich moist, but well drained, soil with light shade. Perfect for an open woodland garden or large rock garden, providing not too dry or sun baked.
