The dactylorhizas are beginning to bloom. It's fascinating to see the variations. All are hybrids that started from D. fuchsii, maculata, and majalis.
very nice Claire, thanks for sharing
Wonderful stuff, Claire. I didn't realize there were any Cypripediums with such a large leaf subtending the flower! Interesting, but quite a distraction for the flower itself. I just love all the twists in the sepals!
Nice, Harold. I have to keep copper mesh around mine to keep the slugs away. It's slug candy to them.
Great colors in a summer garden. Love the clematis.
