Orchis italica

Orchis italica White Italian man orchid

This orchid flowers from April to June and can grow to an height of 50cms (20ins). It is native to all the countries of the Mediterranean basin and likes partial shade. It is often found in groups. The flowers resemble a naked man with all five limbs!
