The most delicate of orchids

One of the most delicate orchids we’ve seen this year both on our tours in Scotland and in Norfolk on our Safari’s is the Heath Spotted Orchid. Quite a delicate stem with beautiful flowers the centre lobe on each petal is smaller than the outer two which distinguishes it from the Common Spotted Orchid where the lobes are of equal size.
All wild orchids are protected by law If you remove or disturb the ground you can be fined or imprisoned or both. If you are lucky enough to have them in your garden and want to move them you need to get a licence from the local council!
