It comprises of a single stem or spike with tiny flowers spiralling up it. Beauty in miniature.
I usually have a walk to Littlestone Warren (also called Pirate Springs) were a few can be found but I called in at the green down the Avenue at Littlestone (with the canon) where some can usually be found if not mowed.
Not only were they numerous on the green but the grass verges of Madeira Road was stuffed full of flowering spikes, a wonderful sight.
No more new UK orchid species to see now until 2018!
