Violet Helleborine
 

 

Violet Helleborine, a type of orchid, is a purplish plant confined mainly to the south-east of England, where it is found in woods, often in gloomy conditions. The flowers are greenish-white and purplish-green, flowering in late 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 die if it were to be transported to another site.
