Anyone else struggling to find Bee Orchid this year or is it just me?
where BO is all over.
Is it cos there is few bees around, Robert ?
As for this unpleasant complaint, suggest a naturally-based deodorant.
[In jest (!). I am averse to smilies.]
Not too sure over the ID of this Orchid at Holt Lowes today. On first inspection I thought it to be Marsh Fragrant, but I have not seen this species before and am a little unsure. Photo in link, below.
Thanks in advance.

The shape of the flower doesn't look like any of the Fragrant Orchids to me. The colour is quite similar though, so I can see why you thought it. I have a feeling from the flower shape that it is a hybrid with at least one (if not two) Dactylorhiza parent(s). The lack of markings on the lip is interesting though. Hopefully a more experienced orchider can elucidate further.
