Last year I found a wild orchid that puzzled me, and I couldn’t find out what kind of orchid it was. I made a post of it, of the secretive swedish beauty. Got a lot of response, but no more knowledge about the species. After some while I was contacted by a swedish expert of orchids, who said this probably was a hybrid of two species. Anyway, I went back to the same place this year, and there it was again. But last year I found two plants of this small beauty. This year it was only one. The picture above is from this year, the one below, from last year. Here is a link to all my photo galleries of wild Scandinavian orchids.
It is 23th July and I have to do an update, because I got in touch with the swedish expert, who have a very interesting site about European Orchids. In his opinion this is a mix between the Common Spotted-orchid (Dactylorhiza maculata) and the Frog orchid (Coeloglossum viride). Great to know.
