Description:

This was growing in long grass in the "wilder parts" of Wakehurst.I recognised it as a Serapias but not a species I have seen before. Obviously despite being Wakehurst it was not labelled, being in long grass, so would be very curious if I've got this right,it was the best naturalized plant find of the day!
