Dactylorhiza purpurella

The Northern Fen Orchid grows in the same sort of conditions as the common Fen Orchid, but in Scotland and northern England. My young plant is nursery grown and the nurseryman (who gets seedlings popping up in all the wrong pots) suspects that this is a hybrid. There is a suggestion of some spotting on the leaf, which shouldn't be there.
