Cultivation of Epipactis

Epipactis species and hybrids generally make excellent garden plants for UK growers.

Garden Care

  • Our Epipactis grow in most garden soils but require a site that is moist all year round without being a stagnant bog. Choose a shady or semi-shady position.
  • It is not necessary to lift the plants before Winter, nor to provide frost protection.
  • In time these plants will form large, attractive clumps.

Container Care

  • Epipactis also make interesting container specimens for large pots.
  • They should be re-potted/divided in the Autumn.
  • The soil should be kept moist throughout the growing season, i.e. from when the shoot appears until the leaves turn brown.
