The Yellow Bee orchid grows in many southern European countries on alkaline soils. It flowers on 40 cm stems in February and March. It can only be grown in an unheated greenhouse in the UK.
It is important to treat plants correctly on receipt. They will have come from my unheated alpine house and need to be kept in a similar situation if they have a full rosette or are continental. All tubers are checked before being dispatched and only guaranteed for 14 days after receipt. I cannot take responsibility for the effects of winter weather or mistakes made by the purchaser.
