Early Purple Orchid
 

 

Early Purple Orchid is an orchid, purple and usually early! The leaves have distinctive dark blotches.

Found mainly in woods and hedgebanks from mid spring to early 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.
