Garden orchids

Dactylorhiza hybrid
Cloned and sold for cultivation
Looks very similar to D. maculata (heath spotted orchid, common spotted orchid etc; Swedish: skogsnycklar)
 Cypripedium calceolus
Cloned and sold for cultivation
The petals and sepals aren’t the deeper purple of C. calceolus (native to most of Europe). This is possibly a selection or a hybrid. Lady’s slipper; Swedish: guckosko.
 Cypripedium kentuckiense hybrid
Venus slipper hybrid.
Cloned and sold for cultivation.
Looks like Cypripedium kentuckiense (native to Kentucky and neighbouring states in the USA), possibly hybrid with C. macranthum from Russia.
