Not come across Bonatea speciosa before.

Anthony, those are some fantastic looking O.mascula, very well grown. In the UK I had Dactylorhiza hybrids growing in troughs with alpine plants and it agreed with them too!
I have loads of Dactylorhiza spp. seedlings appearing in my troughs and pots and as fast as I remove them and plonk them in the border more appear! ::)
