Himantoglossum hircinum

Himantoglossum hircinum Lizard orchid

Satiron barbado

This wonderful orchid is native to much of Europe and eastwards to the Balkans, also in north Africa. It can grow to a height of 130cms. Occasionally you just find clumps of 2 or 3 but there are places where it grows in the dozens. It flowers from April to June.
