An attractive popular ophrys producing large flowers on a tall spike. Tubers readily bulk up producing a good sized clump in a few years.

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.
