A handy reference to the locations of that most beautiful of native plants, the wild orchid. There are 51 species of wild orchid native to the British Isles and each one is covered individually, with a brief description of its habitat and natural history, and an explanation of its botanical name.
Each species is illustrated with two colour photographs, and artworks provide details of specific points of interest. A full listing of sites gives national grid references for easy location, and there are complete listings of the relevant Wildlife Trusts responsible for each site.
