Common Spotted-Orchid

The Common Spotted-Orchid (Dactylorhiza fuchsii) is a widespread species of wild orchid. 
We are fortunate that at this time of year in the local are, many of these grow on a large nature reserve.

They vary in colour from white through to purple and bloom between June and August.
