Description

This event takes place each year as we seek out these beautiful and early orchids. As its name suggests, the early purple orchid is one of our earliest flowering orchids, appearing from April to June. This orchid is often found in habitats with non-acidic soils such as hedgerows, banks, ancient woodland and open grassland. The pinkish-purple flowers appear on a spike of medium height.
