About this book

Language: French

This book describes about fifty species of native orchids growing in Alsace region and the Vosges mountains in eastern France. The reader can use this book to recognise mutants, as well as hybrids with improbable shapes and colours. This book also descibes the pollinating insects, which inseparable partners of orchids. These are orchids that owe nothing to greenhouse cultivation or gathering in the tropics, but grow in the wild in the meadows and forests of France, unbeknownst to most of us.

Summary in French:
Une cinquantaine d’espèces d’orchidées indigènes à découvrir en Alsace et dans les Vosges s’épanouissent dans cet ouvrage. Le lecteur pourra s’ingénier à y reconnaître des mutants, ainsi que des hybrides aux formes et couleurs improbables. Au fil des pages, il rencontrera aussi les insectes pollinisateurs, partenaires indissociables des orchidées. Il est des orchidées qui ne doivent rien à la culture en serre ou à la cueillette sous les tropiques.Ces orchidées-là poussent dans nos prairies et nos forêts, à l’insu de la plupart d’entre
nous.
