Northern marsh orchid

Dactylorhiza (purpurella?)


I am not sure of the species.


The western marsh orchid grows mainly in nitrogen-poor marsh areas that consist of several plant communities. More rarely, it is found in fens.

I think you're right with northern Marsh orchid Marta! I found this mission for my orchid photos too if you were looking for a specific one?
