Terrestrial orchids 2011 to 2014
« on: October 31, 2011, 06:06:29 PM »
Hi,

at the Autumn Meeting of the Hardy Orchid Society at Capel Manor Horticultural College, I managed to pick up this lovely Habenaria rubens - seven stems with three or more flowers on each and more buds to open. I'm in love ;) ;) ;)

Not one I know, Maren... what a cracker of a plant you've got there!
The flower shape and colour is charming and the foliage is so nicely marked..... a good addition to your collection, I reckon.
Does the foliage vary with age or is there more than one clone in the pot?

As far as I know, they all came out of the same seed capsule, it's my photography that isn't too true to the real colour. And you are right, the flowers start out quite pink and then get lighter as they age.

A good time for some Habenarias. Here is H. rhodochila, a little cracker. The colour is hot.

Very nice Maren. I particularly like the orange one.
I don't know much about Habenaria's and assumed they were all white.
I tried one a few years ago but it disappeared.

Lovely plants Tony, espcially the Orchis morio.

Aren't they a little early/very late in flowering? My Ophrys are only just showing a bit of greenery above the top-dressing, and it is Hogmanay, they should be out celebrating, not flowering!  ;D

Peter

the lutea is only about a month early but that morio flowered in mid march last year. The papilonacea flowered in April last year. They are not at their best because of lack of light but I cannot hold them back.
