Bonaventure Magrys asked: Anyone grows this [Platanthera blephariglottis
var. conspicua] tuberous rooted moist sand/bog growing perennial?

I grow this species (Platanthera blephariglottis, aka Habenaria
blephariglottis)  in my bog trays. It is evidently one of the more adaptable
members of the genus, and I've heard reports of it doing well for others,

It's an interesting coincidence that you should have mentioned this species
today: only this morning I noticed that it has its foliage up above the
sphagnum in the bog trays.

I don't know the form conspicua.
