Serapias x. strictiflora

The fourth and final species of Serapias from Michael Myers (the name is given to the natural hybrid between S. lingua and S. parviflora).

Amitostigma keiskei

Michael Myers also exhibited this little Japanese orchid.

Disa Unilangley grex

This lovely orchid from Michael Myers is a hybrid between D. uniflora and D. x langleyensis, which is itself a hybrid between D.racemosa and D.tripetaloides, all from South Africa.

Disa uniflora

Neil Hubbard exhibited a fine plant of D. uniflora.

Cypripedium kentuckiense

Moving on to Cypripediums, I very much liked this plant from Brian and Jo Walker.

Cypripedium kentuckiense
Cypripedium Kentucky Pink

Two slightly different plants were exhibited under this name, the first from Chris Lilley and the second from John Savage.

Cypripedium Kentucky Pink
Dactylorhiza foliosa

Chris Lilley exhibited a fine pan of D. foliosa - the colour is a real struggle to get right, particularly under artificial lighting, and this is far from perfect.

Dactylorhiza foliosa
Dactylorhiza maculata

Ian Instone exhibited two native orchids, the first D. maculata, the Heath-Spotted Orchid, in a form which closely resembles that which I am familiar with from the New Forest, though it is very different from many of the plants we see in cultivation under this name.

Dactylorhiza maculata
Dactylorhiza purpurella

Ian Instone also exhibited a large pan of seedlings of the Northern Marsh Orchid, D. purpurella.

6 vases of cut flowers

Mala Janes' winning entry of cut flowers was much admired.  Two of the most striking members of the set were Meconopsis punicea and Nomocharis aperta.
