Pyramidal Orchid
 

 

The Pyramidal Orchid has deep pink flowers, each with a long spur at the back, forming a conical-shaped cluster around a central spike.

Found on grassland, dunes and old quarries on lime, more common in the south. In flower around mid summer.

Note: As with all wild flowers, orchids should never be picked. Not only does picking a flower deny other people the chance to enjoy seeing it, but the plant will be weakened and the opportunity for it to set seed will be lost. Furthermore, the conditions under which an orchid grows are extremely specific and it would almost certainly perish if it were to be transported to another site.
