well this is a British native and it grows freely on alkaline soils around where I grew up. Thankfully my soil is chalky/alkaline so this early purple orchid [this isnt the marsh orchid Amy but they do look very similar don't they, well same genus so closely related so they should do :o)] is happy in my garden soil. It has been no trouble at all. so go for it Windy.
