    Do you grow these from seed?

    I will be giving it a try Marni. This one I purchased dormant last Autumn from Laneside Hardy Orchids.

    They should be hardy in some areas of the U.S. although they are native to Europe. I have never seen any growing wild in the U.S. and it is unlikely their pollinator would be present so any plants would need to be artificially propagated to grow here.
