Description:

Growing in an open area of a coniferous wood amongst heather (Calluna vulgaris); approximately 18cm high with creamy-white, hairy flowers rather on one side of the spike.
I’ve not seen this orchid here for several years, but it is easily overlooked as, from a distance, you can think it is just another blob of cuckoo spit in the heather!
