ID Of Tall 'Orchid' Plant Please
Found in our shady urban garden:
- Plant is 4' tall with fleshy red protrusions off the thick stem at ground level
- Since the beginning of August has been bearing profuse quantities of pale purple orchid-shaped blooms
- has seed pods that burst when touched and contain 4 dark-brown seeds a little smaller than those of morning-glories
Is is a Helleborine? Can it be grown from seed? We are moving from a sheltered woodland location with rich loamy soil to a sunny, windy area with limestone soil. Will it survive in the new conditions if I transplant it or sow seeds?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
Have photos but don't know how to send them with a posting.
