This excellent hardy orchid is one we received many years ago from our late Plant Guru, Jerry John Flintoff as Dactylorhiza incarnata subsp. africana.  Well, that has been merged into D. elata and it looks right to us but we are not orchid botanists.  Vigorous, with green leaves and richly colored flowers.  Native to Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia in north Africa, dallying on some islands in the Med (smart orchid!) and jumping to France, Spain and Portugal up to Belgium and the Netherlands.
