Orchis collina

By GeorgePlatis
Orchis collina means hilly maybe because it was first found in this type of terrain. This species can be found at altitudes up to 1300m but more generally at lower levels and in many types of habitat though always on alkaline substrates and usually in full sun.It is a very widespread orchid with a range from the Iberian peninsula to the Caucasus but can only really be described as common in Crete, Cyprus, Rhodes and perhaps Malta.

One of the first to appear here on Crete, George, but I haven't spotted one yet. A lovely capture, and I like the inclusion of the little daisy in the corner. Carol
