[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is quite common in semi-mountainous regions and semi-shadow places, in forest edges. The leaves are basal and forming a rosette and its flowers are showing two chromatic variations, one pale, like the depicted plants and one magenta, while plants, with intermediate colors, are not rare. It is spreading through whole Greece, islands and Crete, where it is more rare than the continental country (e.g., in Rhodes, its presence has been recorded only once ). The spur is arching upwards, a feature which discriminates it from Dactylorhiza sambucina. Flowering time: March-April.

This one is very rare here. It is found in only one small area in the very north, and appears in off-white only.
