Green-winged Orchid  (Anacamptis morio)

The Green-winged orchid has purple to pink flowers and is early flowering for an orchid - usually in May. It's short, growing to 15cm, and most often found on unimproved chalk grassland. Although distributed across most of the UK it's classified as threatened, and in sharp decline in the southwest in particular.  

Plants For Sale

We supply orchids in 9cm pots.

Your plants will come with specialist planting and management instructions.

It's very tricky and time consuming to produce orchids commercially, which is why they're so expensive and grown in such small numbers. Their seeds are tiny and wind blown, and in the wild they need a symbiotic fungal partner to germinate and grow. 

Once established, however, they're pretty straightforward to maintain.
