30a and b
These (below) are a beautiful duo which are within the range of two helleborines eg 3ft away, you can see it in the photo.



33
(Below) is long established Atrorubens bicolor with a lovely white/cream epichile and bosses. Photo taken on 26th June 2020 (Hutton Roof)


33a and 33b
(Below) is a long established bicolor-duo which grows alongside No.33 under the close canopy of a hazel bush.

History:
at least since 2012



33C
(Below) 33C is a atrorubens- bicolor, it 10" tall and has 13 flowers/buds, it is only 2ft to SE away from 33 (bicolor)  Also interesting this does have normal colour epichile and bosses whereby its neighbour shows a cream epichile. Photo taken on 19th June 2020.

History: at least since 2018




33h
(Below) is a atrorubens bicolor and lies immediately behind the hazel to the back of 33. It is a very special plant. The epichile is cream yet the bosses are red and therefore shows a sort of banding or white collar which is rare.

History:
at least 2017 and 2018
2020: Not showing



33i
(Below) a beautiful little plant, It is part of the 33 family which every year throws out these small light green examples.

Below - 38a is a lovely mid-red similar to the surrounding specimens (3) Photo taken on 9th July 2020



40a and 40b
(Below) is 40A and 40B - Atrorubens Bicolor. 40A was a single plant from 2014 and came through as a tandem from 2016 it has suffered greatly with both predation and also drought problems. Photos here taken 26th July 2015 as a single plant (left) and 5th July 2017 as a duo (right)

History:
40a since 2013, 2014, and in 2015 20" high with 33 flowers. In 2016 was joined by 40b but predated (B.Hare) one day after full flowering. 2017 Both plants again predated on flowering. 2018 Both showing heavy budding on 28th May 2018 but stayed in mid growth and premature dieback on account of drought weather. In 2019 both again still suffering from last years drought and came through as seedling florets only with no inflorescence.  In 2020 both seem to be doing fine and caged. 40b taken down by Brown Hare (through cage) although left OK 40a on 26th June 2020, although one week later and 40a also got browsed.




40C

(Below) is 40c a Epipactis atrorubens bicolour with very light epichile and bosses, It has come through now for several years and is always the very first plant of the year to show flowers. These photos were taken on the 19th June 2020




41



41a
(Below) found this little beauty hidden away at the bottom of a small hazel
History: 2020



41b
States 38 but been renamed 41b to its area

This plant (above) has a phenomenal inflorescence with 50 plus flowers, I do think looking at the build there could
well be some relation to the specimens 15s family
closeby.

55 (bicolor)





55a (bicolor)









55a1


55C (bicolor)
55c is a beautiful atrorubens bicolor which includes a very light epichile and bosses, also a deep red sepal with a pronounced vertical red midrib line on the lemon petal. Together with a superb bellsweep profile to tips of both petal and sepals.
well established - photo taken 26th June 2020.

66 Atroruben (bicolor)

(Below) 66 is so special, whos ancestor will be preserved within the records of KEW (Accession K000342484). Note bicolor YET on a light green stem!




70 and 70a Atroruben
(Below) is 70 and 70a very light green stemmed atrorubens with possible introgression from E. Helleborine.  Yet the deep red flowers are certainly classic atrorubens looking. It is a annual plant which I have now watched for over 5 years, although 70a only joined about 3 years ago. What I like especially with this plant is the lovely bellsweep profile to the petals, I have never seen it just as pronounced as within this particular specimen. These photos were taken on 7th July 2017 (close up on left) and 10th July 2017 (duo). 70a fell victim to Brown Hare.

History:
First recorded back on 13th July 2016, In 2017 joined by 70 and both on flowering were predated by Brown Hare. 2019 both flowered OK.  2020 come through and doing OK. Early July 2020 70a fell victim to Hare but 70 all OK and shown in photo below.

71 atroruben (var bicolor)
(Below) is 71 an Atrorubens - bicolor. This specimen lies low, some 14" down within a limestone gryke, there is hybrid specimens within close proximity. Photo taken on 19th June 2020, On further inspection 2 days later 22nd June the plant had been predated by Brown Hare and all inflorescence removed.  Although the plant was small mesh caged, the purpetrator managed to push his head down from the top and go inside of the cage.

Escarp West brown 91

(Below) is a very interesting population and there are several in a small cluster that show this beautiful brown on the sepals. This is not unknown to me I also have others on the far side of the pavement probably some 500 yards to the SE.
Unusual.
