Orchid Hybrid

Richard Bateman has confirmed my hybrid as Gymnadenia borealis x Dactylorhiza incarnata. He points out that the spur is too long for Dactylorhiza incarnata  and too wide for Gymadenia. Also, the lateral sepals are long and spread in a rather non-dactyl way. He goes on to say, “The unusual colour and presence of scent seal the determination as far as I am concerned.  A great find!”

This appears to be the second confirmed record for the British Isles and new to Scotland.
