Stunning nice to see one that can go in the garden.

Mine went in the bin last year. Five years and not a single bloom. Cypripedium and Pleione do well for me though.

This has increased from one to two stems, however I've just lost my Dactylorhiza in the last week

I had a few stems. No blooms though. Never. Not One!

That's unlucky, M, but best to stick to what grows well in a garden. Twice I've tried Dactylorhiza, that's it.
