Wild Orchids

by Adrian Morris June. 30, 2021 259 views

These are lovely flowers, but impossible to identify accurately. I've delved into several books (yes I still have books!) but I've found it difficult to definitely identify these flowers. I've called one "heath spotted orchid" because that's what the flowers look like, but the leaves aren't spotted. I've called the other "common spotted orchid" but like the other the leaves don't have the expected spots. Never mind, it's the picture that counts!

Beautiful captures!100
Sometimes it takes more time to search for the names of animals/flowers than to photograph them.

Have you tried Plantsnap ? Not using it myself (I use an app specialized in what can be locally found in Flanders), but apparently it's pretty good.

I was going to recommend the Seek app. but the best it came up with was genus of marsh orchids.

Thanks for trying, Gethin. I think wild orchids can vary in their appearance quite considerably. I have several wild flower books and they show different depictions of  various wild orchids.
