Platanthera chlorantha Greater Butterfly-Orchid
Contents of one seed pod (1000's). This is a rare chance to obtain fresh seed collected from one rather robust plant growing wild in our farm's orchard. Seed has been responsibly harvested - as we have large populations growing here, taking a small amount will not be detrimental. You will receive the contents of one seed pod which will contain thousands of seeds (see photo 4 for example of quantity). Platanthera chlorantha is a native UK species growing in ancient woodlands and grassland. It produces two large glossy, oval shaped green leaves and beautiful greenish-white flowers from June to July that are scented of vanilla. Height to 60 cm. Sun to part shade in damp soil. Seeds are slow to germinate and take 4 to 7 years to flower. BEFORE PURCHASING, PLEASE READ THE GROWING GUIDE ON OUR HARDY ORCHID PAGE.
