Growing native orchid in PNW

Purple Leaved Stream Orchid
A hardy orchid with luscious rich purple leaves on purple stems, to about 1’ or more, and racemes of small but perfectly formed mustard yellow flowers with red markings. Very growable in light shade to sun in a moist rich soil that does not stay completely soggy, where it will form a small colony. This exceptional form was selected in the wild, in northern California, by plantsman Roger Raiche.
Anyone else growing this one or other stream Orchid. This one is native to the PNW.
The big question is do slug or snail like this Orchid?
Last seven winter lows… 12F, 15F, 15F, 26F, 25F, 16F, 21F. 2014-15 monthly winter lows Oct. 43F/ 6.1C, Nov. 21F/−6.1C, Dec. 21F/-6.1C, Jan. 24F/ −4.4C, Feb. 28F/ −2.2C.
