Dear terrestrial orchid friend,

here I would like to present you my new list 2014.

As every year, some new species again, like some easy Greenhoods (Pterostylis) from Australia.

Especially exiting,. I can offer beautiful Dactylorhiza maculata varieties. Dactylorhiza maculata is quite different from Dactylorhiza fuchsi with smaller leaves and different flower structures. Dactylorhiza maculata ssp. elodes favours a more acidic soil and copes also well with weakly fertilized garden soils.

In the eighties, I could obtain some seeds of Dactylorhiza Eskimo Nell, resulting in just one seedling plant. This Eskimo Nell offspring flowered with large, white and scented flowers. Unfortunately, this orchid was hardly fertile. Some 30 years and several generations later, the offspring (Dactylorhiza maculata alba) produces fertile seeds. The flowers are like the originate mother plant large and white, but are not scented.

Wishing you a great orchid year. Sincerely yours

Heinrich Beyrle
