UK Orchids are wide and wonderful in range
There are apparently more than fifty orchids native to the British Isles. Orchids grow in a variety of habitats and I’m finding that part of how to identify them (much like with wildflowers generally) is where they are growing. Below is a list of links to the relevant pages:
Twayblade orchids – Neottia including Listera and Birds nest orchid
I’m aware there are many British orchids, and hope to add more as I find them! I hope to add further ID info in the long term.
Blog posts mentioning Orchids are tagged Orchid as well as their individual Genus, e.g. Epipactis.
or e.g. https://photographingwildflowers.co.uk/tag/epipactis/
Update Nov 2021 – I’ve spotted loads of orchids this year and I have learned a lot so am currently updating this page!
