    I was wondering how much sun this European hardy orchid requires/tolerates. It is my understanding that it grows in open fields as opposed to being a woodland plant - is that corrrect?

    Hello Bill,

    Based on the number of freely-seeding hybrid Dactylorhiza growing throughout the alpine garden at UBC, I'd say they are very tolerant of sun.
