Love the spider orchids Gail!

My Ophrys have finished for the year now and I have bee doing some repotting and vegetative propagation (though I may have missed the boat a bit here). Nevertheless some good tubers. Here is O. helenae:

...and here is Orchis italica.

The purple is perfect, Gail
Also the spottet leaves are nice.
Here T. glaucophylla is flowering.
The blue is very special!

A remake of Dactylorhiza Foliorella gx (foliosa x purpurella). There is a bit of color variation, but some seedlings have a very deep intense purple color.

Dactylorhiza iberica is also in full flower and quite different from other Dactylorhiza. It is supposed to spread by stolons, so I have pollinated it with pollinia from Foliorella gx and praetermissa to see if I can introduce this trait in hybrids that are easier to grow.

Very nice Anders, you have an impressive collection!

Here is my Dactylorhiza 'Tizzy Hornell' which is a large and vigorous plant with a colour that really should come with a health warning (or at least wear sunglasses!)

I am a bit late posting my Dactylorhyza purpurella pics but here are a few.  D. purpurella seeds around usually into pots in the frame.  I rescue them when repotting and pot them separately.  I was most surprised last year when a pure white one appeared in a pot with 2 of usual purple colour. It looks to me like pure purpurella but I am not very good at noticing subtle differences.  It is still alive and flowered again this year. There are colonies of Dactylorhyza maculata not far away but I have never found a pure white one.

Dactylorhyza purpurella has also escaped from my garden and is spreading in my ponies' field in a very wet spot.  It is a native but I am not sure where the nearest natural colony is.  I have not seen it growing locally.

Dactylorhiza spread everywhere it's wet, once i visited a friends after exploring a bog, 2 years after he sent me photos of "strange leaves". It was D. praetermissa, surely from seeds sticked under my shoes.

Nice photos.

Are these orchids also in cultivation?

Here Chiloglottis seminuda is flowering

Hi mellifera,
I think they are cultivated but I don't have much luck with terrestrial orchids so haven't grown them.
There are many growers in parts of Australia and there's a group (Australian Native Orchid Society) that specialises in them,

Helmuth Beyrle (www.myorchids.de) has quite a few Australian species including some Diuris. All propagated from seed.
