Hello.
Is there anyone on the forum who can tell me the name of this Orchid?

I think it is a Dactylorhiza, but what's more?

Hello Thorkild,
whatever it is, it's beautiful and quite exceptional. I am inclined to think that it is a dactylorhiza hybrid, something like Dact. x grandis, because of the unusual height. Do you have a closeup of the flower?
