Artist's Description

Dactylorhiza maculata – Spotted Heath Orchid reaches on average 15–45 centimetres (5.9–18 in) of height, with a maximum of 70 centimetres (28 in). These plants are bulbous geophytes, as they bring their buds in underground tubers or bulbs, organs that annually produce new stems, leaves and flowers. Furthermore these orchids are “terrestrial”, because unlike “epiphyte” species do not live at the expense of other plants of major sizes. This orchid has an erect, glabrous and cylindrical stem, with a streaked surface. The leaves are oblong or oval-lanceolate, with dark ellipsoid-shaped “spots” on the surface (hence the species name).
Found on Culloden moor in Scotland in a bog. Wikepedia
